      Dear Group,

      From "The Gift of Life" by Ven. Dr. Sobhita Thero

      "There are three ways in the practice of dana:

      1. Danaparami - This is the commonly understood practice of the giving of
      one's wealth, food and labour.

      2. Dana upa parami - This is a more vigorous form of giving, such as the
      donation of one's blood, body parts or organs for the needy.

      3. Dana paramattha parami - This is the highest form of giving in which one
      sacrifices one's life for the sake of others.
