What is the Dana Economy?

About our 'Dana Economy'

Cambridge Buddhist Centre is a thriving Buddhist community based on generosity. A Buddhist Centre open to all - regardless of their ability to pay and where we give what we can for the benefit of others.

All our meditation and Buddhism classes are freely given, with the financing of the Centre based on “dana” (generosity). We do not want to charge people to be part of our community.

Our aim is to inspire a culture of generosity in the way we share Buddhist teachings. We teach Buddhism and meditation because we believe in its benefit to the world. More than ever, the world needs Buddhism, meditation, and spiritual community.

We rely on the generosity of visitors and supporters to keep the Centre and its activities alive and available. And we would like to offer you the opportunity to be part of this bold vision. To be part of something radical, a community that gives to the world and to one another, without expecting anything in return.

So, if you feel you want to contribute to this exciting project then please do support us by making a regular or one-off donation. Regular monthly donations are particularly helpful as they give us a reliable income stream which helps us to budget more effectively. If you are not sure how much to give then please reflect on the value you have got (or hope to get!) from your engagement with the Centre and then donate what you feel is right for you. Whatever amount you choose to give, big or small, then thank you very much.
