Contemplation: Generosity Perfected

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your object of contemplation:

The true intention to bestow on every being
All possessions--and the fruits of such a gift:
By such, the teachings say, is generosity perfected.
And this, as we may see, is but the mind itself.

Santideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva, p. 63
