Mitra Tyler Dewar on Generosity


Thank you, Nalandabodhi Canada, for permission to repost the first selection from their new Paramita of the Month series of email posts, featuring our beloved Mitras. What’s a “paramita”?

Why is generosity the first paramita?
Our habitual minds are very much oriented to focusing outwardly, and particularly on our possessions, whereas the path to awakening has a lot to do with relaxing our tight minds and opening up our awareness. That’s one way we could look at the Mahayana’s approach to the “accumulation of merit”: we want to open our minds up by getting its tendrils connected to the experience of other beings.
