Practice for the Week - Cultivating Generosity

Hello Everyone,

In setting the intention to execute various and small acts of generosity this week, remember that the Buddha said that one must feel joyous in the giving in the beginning, middle and end. There should be no feeling of obligation and remember to stop and pause to feel the joy and wholesome mental states as one gives. Last, we can also practice receiving any gifts of generosity with grace. Hoping to hear you all report back next week when we meet again for Balancing the Fetter of Hatred (of Aversion) with Lovingkindness.

with metta,
Pauletta
