A Dana Event
Dana gives an opportunity to be a part of the culture of generosity that sits at the heart of Padmaloka, to help keep that heart alive and thriving, and to contribute towards the short and long term ability of Padmaloka to be able to keep on giving that most precious and essential gift of the Dharma to as many men as possible, so please do consider donating what you can based upon your circumstances.
Please only book if you are a private preceptor.
