Generosity

Book coverGiving, in the sense of developing some real generosity, is not just a question of giving away objects and spending a large sum of money. You have to be wholly involved in the process of giving. You have to become one with what you are doing. No matter how small the thing is in terms of value, one must be fully involved in the giving, so that a part of one’s ego is also given away.

From “Meditation” in Meditation in Action by Chögyam Trungpa, page 49

  1. Nice advice for Christmas when some people give presents. Are there any advice on what to do when one can’t practice for couple of days?
