11/108 Gates of Dharma Illumination

The Eleventh Gate

Mindfulness of generousity is a gate of Dharma illumination;
for [with it] we do not expect reward.

Generosity :
willingness and liberality in giving, freedom from pettiness
or small mindedness, a generous act, abundance, plenty


May we, together with all beings
Give with open hearts
That we can freely see the joy it brings.

May this offering bring peace to all beings
May our actions contribute to the harmony of The Universe
And, may all hearts and minds be opened to The Present

仁道 生開 - Jindo Shokai "Open to life in a benevolent way"
Just another itinerant monk; go somewhere else to listen to someone who really knows.
