What do you think? Does a gift need to be very big and expensive to collect merit? No, it doesn’t. Our teacher, the Supreme Buddha taught us that how we are thinking and the way we give the gift are more important. This is really good news, since sometimes we don’t have big things to give, do we. That means that if we learn the proper method of giving, we’ll always be able to collect powerful good karma, even if our gift is very small. Today we’ll learn five ways to give so we get great benefits from whatever we give. They are really valuable, so I’d like you to write them down as the Bhante teaches us.
