Generosity, or Dana (in Pali, the language of the Buddha), is the act of giving. Dana is at the centre of the endeavour to free ourselves from difficulty and suffering. When we feel able to share what we have, to be generous, there is an easing of the fear that arises with a belief in scarcity, deficiency or shortage. This generosity speaks equally to a generosity of spirit in friendship, kindness, compassion and all aspects of support, which we give to the community in which we live. In modern psychology the act of helping others has been identified as a major contributor to a sense of wellbeing , self-validation and happiness.
