Why contribute to IMCC?
IMCC offers unique teachings by revered teachers that include the cultivation of loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity. These are the forces that build not only better personal relationships but better local communities, nations and world harmony.
Your contribution will help to cover IMCC expenses, support our teachers, and be a demonstration of gratitude for the wonderful teachings we receive. Please consider the importance of IMCC and the dharma in your life and give generously. Generosity is an important part of our teachings. The practice of dana is a way that we can each express our appreciation for the priceless teachings of the dharma that we receive.
IMCC asks for a suggested donation of $5 to $15 for individuals and sangha members attending the weekly Tuesday evening meditation session and dharma talk held at JABA in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Dana — The Practice of Generosity
According to the Buddha, generosity or sharing what we have is one of the central pillars of spiritual life. In the act of giving we develop our ability to let go, cultivate a spirit of caring and acknowledge our shared interconnectedness.
The practice of dana has kept Buddhism alive for more than 2,500 years. In the Buddhist tradition there has always existed an interdependence between those who offer its teachings and those who receive them.
