Dana and Buddhists

Buddhists like to do dana - the act of giving food or robes to the monks. Dana can also mean giving help to others who need it and it can be in the form of money, things, advice or kind words to cheer someone up.

Those who give money to help the needy will get back money much more than what they have donated according to the law of karma (cause and effect).

Buddhists will become wiser by giving kind words to someone to cheer him up or guide him to the right path.

You can even wish that a certain function to be held will be successful. This can constitute dana too.

Hence you need not be rich to practise doing dana.
