The Benefits of Giving

Prayer Flags

Practising generosity is beneficial to both the recipient and the giver. The law of cause and effect teaches us that positive karma accumulated through giving will definitely result in future fortune and merit. The teachings on compassion also explain that the only way to find happiness is by helping others. These beliefs form the basis of Mahayana Buddhism and therefore are essential in the Tibetan tradition.
