PERFORM MERITORIOUS DEEDS BASED ON THE ASPECT THAT IS ESSENTIAL TO YOU; UNDERSTAND THE RIGHT WAY OF GIVING

Caller:

Let’s say I have ten thousand dollars.  Should I use it to perform liberation of captive lives? Sponsor school fees for those unfortunate children? Or should I make offerings to the temple in support of the Three Precious Treasures of Buddhism? May I know which one is more important?

Master Jun Hong Lu:

Firstly, you should decide on the aspect that is essential to you. If you are praying for longevity on behalf of someone, for sure you should give priority to performing liberation of captive lives; If you wish to achieve more blessings of virtue, you may practise the act of giving. Secondly, with this money you will need to understand the right way of giving. Should your money be used by others to do unscrupulous deeds, you will be held guilty too.
