Dakshina

Dakshina is a financial gift given to a spiritual Master in gratitude for a blessing. It is a voluntary gift and is not required in any way.

When dakshina is given in the spirit of love, without any expectation or obligation to pay, it grants you the full benefit of the Master's blessings.

When you offer your dakshina (either directly to Guruji or into the basket provided) please say ‘Krishna Arpanamastu’, which means ‘I offer this to Krishna.’ Saying this phrase amplifies the blessing and frees both the giver and the receiver from any karmic debt from the action.
