Dāna : la pratique du don
Selon la tradition Dana telle qu'elle existe en Asie du Sud-Est, les enseignements sont considérés comme trop précieux pour être vendus et les enseignements de qualité restent ainsi accessibles à tous. Les enseignants dépendent pour leur subsistance des dons offerts gratuitement à la fin du cours.
