Are you giving what you have?

May you be like the lotus light, bright up the surrounding! You can!

Are you willing to give donation?

How do you actually give donation?

Are you giving based on your ability?

Are you giving based on what you are willing to let go?

Are you willing to let go what you have?

My teacher always teach us to practice “Whatever you are hard to let go, you just let go…” It’s easy to say instead of do it. However when come to actual practice, it’s ready hard to let go especially if there is what you have in life.

Today, one of my friend really shown us a great lesson on giving and let go selflessly. She gave away what she had in life. She has received a long service award from the company, came with a token of product voucher worth more than USD $800.00 and she was willing to donate all her token for the building fund of monastery.

She is not so wealthy yet she never keep a single cent for herself from the token. What a kind virtue that we can learn from her. We are inspired by her generosity on letting go.

Just ask yourself, Are you willing to give what you have to help others?

A lot of times, we are giving our “extra” to help others and its a big challenge to give the only thing you have to help others.

Just imagine, a people who earn USD $ 10,000 to giveaway USD $ 1000 vs a people who earn USD$ 2,000 and give USD $1,000 to help others. What is the impact in their life even though the donation amount is the same?

Let’s continue the kind virtue of giving to bring happiness to others. May you also be the role model of giving like my lovely friend who inspired and touched our heart.

A true selfless act from a practitioner of Bodhisattva path.

  1. Give what your heart tells you to do… I never have doubts when giving… It can always be more… But it’s also good to think about how much to give. If you give away all you have and next week there is a disaster somewhere in the world, you can not do a thing because you gave it all away. Therefor give wisely.

    • It’s not easy to give and let go all you have. The more we let go, the more freedom we enjoy in life. Take a try! Cheers!
