Discussing Dāna: A One-Day Symposium on Buddhist Charity
Charity (Sanskrit: dāna, derived from the same Indo-European root as Latin: dōnum, gift) is the most fundamental of all Buddhist virtues, and rituals of donation are important throughout Buddhism. This day-long symposium is intended to help develop conversations about dāna from a variety of disciplines, including history, ethics, philosophy, ritual studies, and anthropology.
