The DC Dana Village aims to be an organization of volunteers that practice the Buddhist value of dana ( generosity ) through serving others. We conduct various activities, including social activities that are beneficial.
Some recent events include preparing food for the terminally ill, presenting a classic documentary film about insight meditation, gardening, and weekend trips to Buddhist monasteries and meditation centers.
We are affiliated with the Washington Buddhist Vihara.

In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.
