Offering Dana at the Dhamma Centre

A Merit that Surpasses that of the Four Great Oceans

You now have a great opportunity to give dana in the name of the Sangha, which is incalculable and immeasurable. Therefore, the Buddha said that there is no way that gift given to an individual can be more fruitful than giving a gift to the Saṅgha.

To take up this rare opportunity to offer dana to the Maha Sangha at Colombo Dhamma Friends of Mahamevnawa Buddhist monastery Kotte, send an SMS or call to reserve a date for a dana offering. However, if you are unable to come in person, you can sponsor a dana for the Maha Sangha.

If you knew about the wonderful results of giving and sharing as the Buddha knew, you would neither eat without sharing with others nor would the stain of stinginess overcome your mind.

By continuously giving and developing it as a habit, we will be able to easily see the fruits that dana offerings bear: just as Vishaka and the merchant Anathapindika continuously gave dana and were known by everyone in the Buddha’s Dispensation, you too can gain great results from the offerings.
