This Treasure Called Generosity

1898638_10202499444141234_1913807302_oLay disciples of the Buddha,

with a mind free of disgracing miserliness,

freely bountiful and openhanded,

delight in being magnanimous,

are responsive to every request,

and enjoy the giving of alms.

Just as a filled pot, when it is overturned,

pours out all of its water, leaving nothing back,

even and exactly so do they give to those in need

―whether inferior, equal, or superior to them―

like the overturned pot, holding nothing back.

―Buddha Shakyamuni
