Possibility to share your merits and rejoice about the merits of others via Bhante Subhūti website.

Sadhu & Anumodana!

Samana Johann:

--- Quote ---Mr. Allen:

I would have thought the best way of taking care of animals was, as much as possible (given that some of them might see you as a snack), to let them go free, and live their lives as they choose. Including fish, however small and insignificant.

My partner always 'frees' insects and the like accidentally 'captured' in our home, and releases them into the world, saying "Go free, little creature, and live your life." How much I learn from her metta.

Anumodana!

Worlds farmers gift and share of alms food, dedicated for their ancestors, where ever they might be and to support a long lasting of different beggars, so that they might meet each other possible and hear the Dhamma.

A short story consisting of only the happy end:

"Empty of everything and nothing."

Feel free to add it to any fabrication your currently obsessed with. It's both, a happy end that matches all fabrications and a story in itself. Boundless merits, so to say. :fu:  :teehee:

Samana Johann:
Yes, there was a monk at Buddhas time, who walked through the forest, saying constantly, "What a bliss! What a bliss!". The other monks accused him of having fallen to "the left" and approched the Buddha, how explained and confirmed that he is awakened. One might find the story of merits, the sharing of merits, this "tiny" story of metta in the Theragata, if my person remembers right.

Hi Samana Johann,

I would have though what you describe here as examples of dana. Which to me begs the question, what is the difference between dana and metta?
