This week Gil Fronsdal begins a four-weeklong Tricycle Retreat on dana or generosity. This practice, which he calls revolutionary, is one of the foundations of setting out on the Buddhist path, as well as being one of the expressions of enlightenment at the the path’s end. Watch a preview of the Week 1 teaching below, and visit the retreat here.

Tricycle Retreats are open to Tricycle Community Supporting and Sustaining Members. Not a member? Now is a good time to join. When you join this month you’ll receive a free e-book on generosity compiled the editors of Tricycle.
