In this world, to do charity is not that easy. I gave what I had, according to the time. Maybe too little, I don’t know. But little 200,000 can help a lot of people. (Yes.) (A lot of people.) In a refugee camp, in some third country, they can live for, maybe at least some weeks, no? (Yes.) (Some years probably.) What? (Some years probably.) Some years? Refugee camp. (Yeah.) It cannot be useless, a few hundred thousand dollars, no. Even little, but everybody a little. I just help what I can. Five points, the best five ways of offering. The best of the five even is spreading the Dharma, tell the teaching to the persons who need it, who want it. Yeah, yeah, yeah, okay. Oh, because of that, I told you that just for your example. That’s from my own example, I know that happens, I know that really works, because of all that I did, since I was a child until now. And that’s why I have never lacked anything. Even when I was a young and poor student, still people took me in their house, and gave me food and drink and treated me so kindly. I was really nobody. I’d just been treated kindly wherever I went, if I was alone. And then if I’m with somebody else, it depends on my luck. If that person is bringing me luck, or at least doesn’t take away my luck, or at least doesn’t have such a heavy karma that it will shade over all my luck temporarily. Some people do bring you luck, some people take your luck, some people cause trouble. It’s true. You have to share half of the karma with whomever is next to you. So it is true that, if you do charity work, truly it comes back to you. Okay, so we go back to the five charities, Okay, so we go back to the five charities, five best offerings that give you immense merit, even in this lifetime. I don’t have to repeat, no? I repeat again. Okay, summary. Number one: Giving things, giving necessary things to the people who came from far away. Number two: Giving necessities to the people who are going far away. Number three: Giving necessities to sick people. Number four: Giving food to the persons who are just very hungry. That included these, these mouths, hungry saints sitting around here. So, the kitchen team, you’re doing merit, immense merit.
