Title: Invitation to create a useful "Dhamma-Dana" signation/declaration (licence)

Venerable members of the Sangha,
walking in front Fellows in leading the holly life.

 _/\_  _/\_  _/\_

In Respect of the Triple Gems, Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha, in Respect of the Elders of the community _/\_

Valued Upasaka, Upasika, Aramika(inis),
dear Readers and Visitors,

 *sgift*

Seeing many troubles with the modern use of licences and also the fact, that most licences do not really fit to what is "Giving Dhamma", Dhamma-Dana, at least in not expressing the purpose and intend as well as values, my person thought of why not trying to develope a dhammic alternative, useable aside a wordily adepts which have never "Right View" as forerunner, common, and so never "Right intent/resolve" as indicated intention.

Having started once with developing an alternative here (http://sangham.net/index.php/topic,874.0.html), some parts are maybe useful.

The main purposes:


The "material" or sensual graspable aim here is:

Please feel free, invited an most possible encouraged to contribute in this undertaking, in what ever way feeling inspired and gifted able to contribute in respect and devotion of the Lord Buddha, his Dhamma and the Noble Sangha, represented by the community Bhikkhus.

Anumodana!

In regard of expressing "Right View" and "Right resolve" in indicators and headline:

The signation with an previous act might be well either in calling it "giving" e.g. "gift".

Being a gift of Dhamma, or having derived from Dhamma-gifts and now giving it further, and representing a declaration of such, a wording of "Dhamma-Gift-Declaretion" or "Dhamma-Dana-Decleration" "ddd" short ⓓ might be proper for fist indication and headlines.


Possible name/headline:

"Dhamma-Dana-Declaration" which is of course not easy common understandable and might be called "Scope of this (Dhamma) - Gift".

Possible logo and sign:

Sign: ⓓ

Logo: (http://zugangzureinsicht.org/html/img/d2.png)(http://zugangzureinsicht.org/html/img/d2.png)

In both, sign and logo, it carries not only the "d" of "d.d.d.", "Dhamma-Dana-Declaration" but also some reminders on the common known "ⓒ" (from "copyright") which migh make it easier to find it, since people at lage are used to look after such, in search of what the "gift" is about.

Quote from: from the origin of it [News] "c" goes "d" Arbeiten um besseres Verstandnis von Rechter Ansicht (http://sangham.net/index.php/topic,874.0.html)
Als Schlagwort für die erste Umbauphase kann man vielleicht von "c"opyrights zu "d"ana annehmen und teilen, als Titel sehen.

Das Element des nach rechts offenen Kreises des "c", auf einer Seite schützend, auf der anderen Seite gebend, wird durch das "d" "ersetzt", oder besser aus den "c" wird zum besseren Verständnis ein "d", daß nicht mehr in einem geschlossenen Kreis ist, sondern das was da ist nimmt und nach oben, aus dem Kreislauf heraus bringt.

Da anzunehmen ist, daß nicht alle bereit sind ausschließlich und stets in Sphären des Dhammas zu denken, habe ich auch versucht, dieses "c" (oder eventuell vorhandenes Beanspruchen) in dieser neuen Form beizubehalten. Also es werden keinerlei Dinge genommen, oder entfernt, sondern nur so genutzt, daß sie nach oben und zum best möglichen wirken.

Aus dem alten doch sehr aufdringlichen "c" wird das Neue "d"

Short: The "d" still contains the "c", while cutting of a part of it with its vertical line, which is pointing or directed upwardly and leaving the circle, breaking through it, Nibbana.

Kinds of Dhamma-Dana and origin, incl.suggested declaration:

Its maybe good to divide between differen declarations:


Material derived from commercial development, given for commercila use, or objected also for commercial use and wordily gains are not possible object for having a "Dhamma-Dana-Decleration", or not fitting into one of the decleration.[/list][/list]

Some FAQ - thoughts as to understand and build up on this...

What is the purpose of using "Dhamma-Dana-Declaration"?

For the giver it should be an easy way to express his gift and intention in giving. Others than copyright-declerations or licences the focus here is not to primaly serve certain laws and look best after ones rights, but to focus on the act of giving, while not forgetting the origin and to possible make the deed ethical high and skillful. In short: to gain the most merits in sharing.

For the receiver it should protect him from wordily string as much as possible, give him all possible freedom to share the merits and by explaining and expression, helping him to develope right view and gratitude in regard of the gift.

Do "Dhamma-Dana-Declaration" work inside certain law systems and does it use its function?

Only indirect. Since Dhamma-Dana-Declarations" are only useable for gifts without purpose of commercial use or other wordily gains, there is naturally less space for conflicts. The use of DDD does not release a certain giver to prove if that what he gives is his own and/or given to him/here. "DDD" does also not work as a disclaimer system and respects the truth that both, giver and receiver are responsible for their deeds.

DDD is not meant as a legal system or even replaces such. It does not touch laws, but provides simply with declarations which are in accordiance with skilfull deeds according the law of nature. Naturally, by reading also the explainings and tips to understand clearly normaly one would not touch any law an possible violate it, since it is build up eternaly on what is given, and does not incl.claims of rights and demands.

What about a more general declaration, simply abound much effort in carry on of which has been shared previously not so proper, leave it up to others to improve their ways.

This is a gift of Dhamma dedicated for higher long term well-being and beyond. You are given to use it and build on it for what ever good, not harmfull for others, purpose in dedication toward the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha. Whether you wish to give credits also toward the particular author personally or the paricular community of this generosity, beyond the Tripple Gems, is up to your inspiration.
In no way this gift is shared for improper use such as trade and commercial purposes incl. fondraising and also common charitable activities and exchanges. This incl. undertakings which have the purpose to gain personal/communal reputations. It's not given for undertakings which have the purpose of harming or depriving beings of existance or their possessions, not to transport what is not true, lying and encourage to such or dividing others, not to abuse and not for encouragements to consume means which cause heedlessness, not to use to force claims or blackmail something or for oppressions of what ever isn't given voluntary yet, which incl. political and strategical for what ever worldly affairs.


Thought and especially improvement in formulation and language are welcome.
