Offering Chant Live- Lama Gyurme & Jean-Philippe Rykiel
Offering is an essential aspect of Buddhism. It leads to the broadening of one’s spirit in an ever expanding dimension, whereas keeping things for oneself prevents an opening to the world. Space makes room for happiness whereas confinement holds us back in a state of suffering. Generosity extends itself to those in material need or inwardly in pain. It also unfolds itself, as in this chant, towards the Buddhas and all awakened beings: the practitioner thinks of himself as offering in spirit all the universes, all the beauties and all the wealth they contain; thus he is able to offer more and more, as he continually opens himself to the dimensions of the infinite.
