Generosity supports community

Insight Community of the Desert is completely supported by your donations.  Your giving makes our programming possible and supports this community of wisdom and compassion for the Coachella Valley.

This sangha, this refuge, is one of the three precious jewels of Buddhism and it is here entirely because of your presence and your support. Together, we are creating a gift to share with each other and our communities. Please help us continue.

We often use the Pali word Dana when referring to the act of giving, it signifies “spontaneous generosity of the heart”. It is a spiritual perfection (parami) that the Buddha taught we can develop through practice and sangha. It’s a beautiful response to a consumption-driven culture. The world needs our generous heart…this community needs your generous heart.
