Trip to Sunshine Cottage Centre Kulim
On the 21 June 2007, Mr. Phang, Chairman of Karma Norbuling Buddhist Centre led a group of devotees to Sunshine Cottage Centre in Kulim to practice generosity that helps to develop our compassion. We see how inextricably connected we are with all beings — how our own happiness is the result of such vast kindness. Our bodies, our education, our possessions – everything – was given to us by others.
This then leads to the deep understanding of wisdom. There is no solidly separate “I” in the way that we habitually think. This radical shift in our understanding opens the door to complete freedom – for oneself and all beings. As we give, we can contemplate the emptiness of the circle of the three: agent, object and action – giver, gift, and giving – are all interdependent, and thus empty from their own side.
