Buddhist Monk Bhante Sujatha describes giving with a literal translation from his Sri Lankan language, Sinhala. In Sinhala, giving means, “It leaves my hand.” That’s a clear, simple and elegant concept. Yet so many of us struggle with the true act of giving and the abundance required to give openheartedly.
