About DC Dāna Village

The DC Dāna Village aims to be an organization of volunteers that practice the Buddhist value of dāna (generosity) through serving others. “Without abandoning these five qualities, one is incapable of entering & remaining in the first jhana… second jhana… the third jhana… the fourth jhana; incapable of realizing the fruit of stream-entry… the fruit of oncereturning… the fruit of non-returning… arahantship. Which five? Stinginess as to one’s monastery [lodgings] … one’s family [of supporters]… one’s gains… one’s status, and stinginess as to the Dhamma.” — AN 5:256-257 “If beings knew, as I know, the results of giving and sharing, they would not eat without have given, nor would the stain of miserliness overcome their minds. Even if it were their last bite, their last mouthful, they would not eat without having shared, if there were someone to receive their gift. But because beings do not know, as I know, the results of giving and sharing, they eat without have given. The stain of miserliness overcomes their minds.” — Iti 26
