We are calling on ALL of our Treeleaf Members and friends to Vow to undertake one extra, special 'Good Deed' each day (besides all the Good you already do!) and dedicate this to our Sangha.

MORE DETAILS AT THE FOLLOWING LINK (including information on placing 'LAH' on all our posts and writings ...



A TREELEAF EXPERIMENT with EVERYONE’S PARTICIPATION REQUESTED: “LAH” (Lend A Hand)
(LINK HERE) (http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/showthread.php?15314-A-TREELEAF-EXPERIMENT-with-EVERYONE%C2%92S-PARTICIPATION-REQUESTED-%C2%93LAH%C2%94-%28Lend-A-Hand%29)



This is a manifestation of our Shikantaza Practice out in this world, this is a Community Project together. We recall especially that Mahayana Buddhism that is actually not about us at all, but is always dedicated to the world. We sit for the world, we act for the world and others. So, this is just another form of Shikantaza, like Chanting Metta ... it is Metta in Action. Like placing an offering on the Altar, this is making small offerings to the Altar which is the world. Like working in Samu to pick weeds or cook, or eating Oryoki, this is working to pick a few weeds in our town, to feed others as we feed ourselves.

We do not need personal credit. In fact, in traditional Buddhist belief it is the GIVER who is indebted to the RECIPIENT for an opportunity of merit, as much as the other way around. We try not to be too proud or take too much credit, but it is okay to feel good about it too. Giver, Gift and Receiver are truly one.

One can speak about what is done, but ANONYMOUSLY, in a way primarily to inspire others without our names being linked. We ask folks, from time to time, to tell stories of deeds through our anonymous Gojo Bodhisattva system (email stories to gojo@treeleaf.org ) where only the ombudsman will know the sender, and will publish free of names and keep it all secret (we are looking for a system where even the ombudsman will not know). It is wonderful to feel joyful for doing good, but at the same time we learn not to be prideful or to overly pat ourselves on the back. We learn that the whole world supports each other.

So, now is the time to join in. This is also a facet of our Daily Practice. There is no penalty for not joining in, and all is purely voluntary ... yet by not joining in there will be a small loss to our communities, our world, to you.

Please let me now introduce The Treeleaf LEND-A-HAND ('LAH') Project ... WE NEED YOU!
