Today's Daily Dharma: Generosity Produces Peace
Generosity Produces Peace
is a powerful—and intimate—practice, for we are actually inviting
another person into ourselves. Rather than focusing on our own practice,
or on our own virtue, we can focus on providing an opportunity for
someone else to develop generosity. . . . That moment itself is
unsullied. For that reason it is said that generosity is the discipline
that produces peace.
