You'll also receive the text for the Merit Box practice featuring a mini-commentary by Lama Zopa Rinpoche on the benefits of generosity, the actual visualization for the practice, and a short dedication
Generosity is at the heart of Mahayana Buddhist practice and with the
International Merit Box Project
, you can practice generosity towards Lama Zopa Rinpoche and your other gurus daily. With just one simple action, you not only personally receive incredible merit, but we work together to significantly benefit so many beings.
Begun in 2001, the International Merit Box Project collects thousands of dollars from FPMT students, centers and projects worldwide, and disburses it through grants to eligible FPMT projects and initiatives.
By growing the number of participants all over the world, we hope to widen the array of initiatives eligible to benefit from kind donations to the International Merit Box Project. The Merit Box is a tangible example of generosity and community in action. Donations are collected beginning on Lama Tsongkhapa Day each year and continuously until March 31 of the following year.
