#Buddhism   #Dharma   #generosity  
by Gary Wong:
GENEROSITY IS LETTING GO OF “ME”

The Buddha spoke constantly of the value of generosity, saying it is the most effective way to reach enlightenment. He recommended giving simple gifts — pure water to drink, food, shelter, clothing, transportation, light, flowers. Even poor people can be generous, he said, by giving a crumb of their food to an ant. Each time we give something away, whether it is a material object or our time (it is “ours”?), we are letting go of a bit of that carefully gathered and fiercely defended temporary heap of stuff we call, “I, me, and mine.”
