“Giving is the beginning of receiving”
Bodhikusuma is a non-profit organisation relying on your support to spread the Dhamma for the benefit of others.
The Buddha would always teach first and foremost about the value of giving before giving teachings such as morality, karma, and the 4 noble truths.
Giving leads to gaining good merits. Yet the amount of merit gained is determined by 3 factors : the intention behind the giving, the spiritual purity of the recipient, and the kind and size of the gift.
When donating please give with the intention of purifying your mind of greed and selfishness, knowing that your support for Bodhikusuma provides for noble monks and guests to spread the Dhamma. Spreading the Dhamma is the greatest gift of all, so please give generously.
