      "Generally the practice of dana
      means the giving of material things.
      But one can also give one's energy in physical labour,
      or kind words of sympathy, appreciation, and advice.
      Some people also give their whole life
      of selfless dedication to a worthy cause.
      The giving of knowledge
      can be of great benefit to others.
      For example, rather than give a man a meal
      which helps him for only one day,
      if one teaches him a skill
      by which he earns a livelihood,
      one helps him for a lifetime.
      Of all the gifts, the gift of Dhamma, is the highest.
      The Dhamma teaches us the laws of existence
      which is important to know
      so that we can live in accord with them
      and thus avoid pain and suffering
      in this and future lives."
      From: Message of The Buddha
