Contemplation: Charity

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:
Subhuti, in the practice of charity a bodhisattva should be detached.  That is to say, he should practice charity without regard to appearances--without regard to sound, odor, touch, flavor, or any quality.  Subhuti, thus should the bodhisattva practice charity without attachment.
from the Diamond Sutra, chap. 4, trans. A.F. Price and Wong Mou-Lan
