The practice of generosity (dana in Sanskrit) is one of the six paramitas, or Great Perfections, in Zen. It is grounded in the understanding of no-self: there is no one to possess and nothing to be possessed. Paramita also means to cross to the other shore, and through the practice of the paramitas our lives are transformed. Donating to the Zen Center is an opportunity to practice the perfection of generosity.
