Sponsorship / Donation towards Nyung Ne Retreat
The merit from sponsoring someone to do
a Nyung-Ne is the same as if one does it oneself. You can also take the
opportunity to make special dedications for the sick, for success of
projects and in exams, for quick resolution to problems, for the
perfect human rebirth of the recently deceased, and for the halt to
global warming and for world peace.
The motivation for dana (giving), one
of the Buddhist Six Perfections (paramitas), is utterly pure - free
from all desire, conceit or misguided views. Thus in the perfection of
giving one should seek no return for oneself and be impartial, like the
sun: that casts its radiance over all without a hint of favor.
In ultimate terms, there is no giver,
no recipient and nothing is given - yet we still give! This is an
important insight. Generosity is a positive virtue we can practice. It
is a good way of developing a shift away from basically egocentric
The ego is always trying to expand its
province by accumulating, whereas to freely give is to reverse this 'I'
building process so that for once the energy flows the other way.
Naturally, one may gain merit from giving, but even this can be given
away to benefit all sentient beings.
