The Heart of Giving

Dawn Mauricio

Dāna helps to weaken and dispel greed, and it manifests as non-attachment. Its proximal cause, or what can help it arise more easily, is having something to offer, having something to be relinquished. Check in with yourself as you hear that last part in particular: “having something to offer or relinquish.” Just notice where the mind or heart goes.
