In this second episode of Pobsa's Dharma Lounge, the beautiful practice of dana is explored. As a form of "gift exchange," the practice of dana may be one of the most anti-capitalist forms of exchange based upon joy and not commodification. For many raised in the consumerist cultures of the west, to break out of a "fee for service" mentality can prove quite challenging and yet also amazingly liberating.
The podcast is an example of dana as I do not take any advertising or sponsorship and there is no exclusive content only for "patrons" or "members." If you wish to share your support of this project, whether as a one-time offering or as a periodic sharing, you can be assured that all dana will be received gratefully!
