Dana is a Pali word meaning “generosity.” Pali is the written language used in the earliest Theravada Buddhist texts.
The Buddha taught that acts of generosity open the heart and gladden the mind. The feelings that arise while planning a generous act, persist during the act, and continue long after the act itself. In this way, practicing generosity conditions wholesome states of mind and produces an open, loving heart.
