IS MONEY AND TIME SPENT TO ACCUMULATE VIRTUES CONSIDERED AS VIRTUES?

Caller:

A Buddhist friend asked whether money spent for the purpose of attending Dharma Convention, like flight tickets and accommodations, is counted towards the accumulation of our virtues.

Master Jun Hong Lu:

Yes it will.  Let me relate a story to you.  There was a person who always goes to a temple, a decent temple which always helps others perform virtuous deeds.  He spends at least 2 hours on each of his visit.  For every visit he made, he spent not only his time but also his money.  Subsequently, his company assigned him to manage transportation of which he earned a lot of money.  Besides his normal salary, each time he helps to manage any activities in relation to transportation, he will receive a handsome reward.  It was just as if, in this aspect, he has earned his karmic reward.  That is why I answered your earlier question as such.  Do you understand?

Caller:

That means all the money and time spent are considered as virtues?

Master Jun Hong Lu:

That’s right as you have accomplished the task.
