Via Daily Dharma: A Guide to Generosity

Two important things about true giving: First, it requires some sacrifice on the part of the giver. To give away something that one doesn’t need is not dana. Second, the act must not be condescending but must show respect to the one who receives the gift. In fact, one is grateful to the recipient who makes the act of giving possible.

—Taitetsu Unno, “Three Grapefruits
