pass me some good karma
« on: July 11, 2016, 06:53:06 pm »
I read a post about the ability for other to pass good karma to another person.  I keep getting very ill so if anyone has some spare good karma, I could use it. 

Thanks

Producing good kamma does not extinguish dukkha, there is still grasping at this good kamma. To follow the Buddha Dhamma is to seek the cessation of kamma.

True. But you can have any merit I've gained from my Buddhist practices. As in 'Any merit I have thus gained, I give up to alleviate the suffering of others.' Used to annoy some others at the Buddhist Center when I said that this was my favorite part of the Puja. 'Why else would you do the Puja if not to gain merit?' came the cry. So if merit is good karma, and you believe in karma, it's on the way.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

If I filled some 3000 galaxies with the seven treasures, and gave all away for charity and as alms, then transferred the incurring merit to you, the merit thus gained would not even compare to the merit of trying to explain even one line of the Diamond Sutra. It says so in the Diamond Sutra, and all the merit cumulated by thus having tried to explain said sutra is yours. So, you

would gain great merit and spread much happiness, even
though, in truth, this person does not have a separate existence to which merit could accrue.
Why? Because this person’s merit is characterized with the quality of not being merit.

You are also very welcome to any and all good karma I may have accumulated. The doors of my Dharma Treasury are welded open, but keep in mind that truly, non-self means that there is no separate person to whom karma could accumulate. To quote the Diamond Sutra:
Quote
do not see them (blessings and merit) as private possessions, but they (great disciples) see them as
the common possession of all beings
