Hi All,
I know it is a lot to ask, but if there are any more financially fortunate people out there who would like to help me to attend Dharma teachings with various Guru's this summer please respond via PM...

Sincerely...

Take your request to Buddha with sincerity. I recommend Amitabha if you have faith, sincerity, respect, and say his name...and if you really take karma to heart, you would practice giving wealth and you will have wealth in the future. Fifty cents from your heart with sincerity and respect will be worth more than those who give millions in the name of fame and recognition...all Buddhists have to practice giving wealth but apparently most don't take this to heart from my understanding. You need wealth as your resource and tool to cultivate your path, but it should not be an attachment to you if you clearly understand your path.

If you are really a student of Triple Jewels, which means now you don't think or do all the craziness you used to think and do. Now you are aware of your thinking and actions more and follow the teachings, precepts, conducts (including laws), etc. Then when you asked for help in cultivating your path, Buddha and Bodhisattva will grant you. If you ask for material things for your enjoyment and pleasure, then Buddha and Bodhisattva cannot help you. So I recommend saying Namo Amitabha and make your request...Remember the Earth Store Bodhisattva's story, by reciting a Buddha name the girl become enlightened. So becoming enlightened is even possible through saying a Buddha's name, any other request would be the same also if you say with sincerity, respect, and faith. Faith here is important...no faith will not work. All of this talk will not help either. All of reasoning will not help either if with no Faith and actually reciting.

Keep us posted on how it goes. Who knows, maybe you will find someone out there who would find your travel costs trifling.

I will catmoon,
Yes people who are wealthy can also make more merits for their future by being generous in the present.. It is also especially good, I believe to support dharma practicioners this day in age..
