Day 17 – GIVING

The following meditation is from The New Meditation Handbook, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

17. GIVING

Purpose: To put our wishing love into practice.

We first think: “All these mother living beings are seeking happiness in life after life. They all want to be happy but there is no real happiness anywhere in samsara. I will now give them the supreme happiness of permanent inner peace.”

We then imagine that through the power of our pure intention of wishing love and great accumulation of merit, our body transforms into the nature of a wish fulfilling jewel, which has the power to fulfill the wishes of each and every living being. Infinite light rays radiate from our body and pervade the entire universe, reaching the body and minds of all living beings and bestowing upon them the supreme happiness of permanent inner peace. We strongly believe that all living beings experience this inner peace.

Object of meditation: The strong belief that all living beings experience this inner peace.

 Reflection:

This meditation holds depths for me. It is similar to my life dream that I often repeat to myself when I am clarifying my intentions for this life.

I dream that I can be successful enough to give my time to other beings. I can give my life without fear or being homeless or poor and share with others the gifts of the world.
