Serving - Veyyāvacca, the unknown Sila of duty

Post by Samana Johann 1 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 5:58 am

Making use of the generosity of exceptional leave to remain, again just in trust that given, wished and enjoyed, althought not really expressed and therefore certain uncomfortable:

Venerable members of the Saṅgho dwelling here or coming accross,
Venerable fellows on the path in front, _/ _ _/ _ _/ _ , venerable fellows,
Valued Upāsaka, Upāsikā,
Dear Buddhabodhisattas,

Veyyāvacca, service is mostly recognized as generosity, but actually a moral duty, or let it me called the base of nurishing the first often unseen precept of refuge, for a refuge.

Also here, like in the liked frist unknow sila, is a great field of merits found if inspired to develop the open-source gift, given by those gone the path before, and at the same time, the Venerable members of the Sangha are asked to, out of compassion, correct possible errors and to fill missing links and fill graps for best benefit of many.

(Un)Fortunately, how ever one likes to take or reject it, the draft is still not translated: Dienen, Helfen und Unterstützen - Veyyāvacca

Anumodana!

Much joy for all capable to nurish higher mind with it by being inspired to give into, and may the Devas inform those, having not had physical touch of it.
It's not clear if the possibility to take on form here is given, so also this post might be made on merely uncomfortable trust. Please don't be shy to make remark as well as to do what ever with the post you might be inspired to. Key is found here. May it be, how ever, understood as Dhamma-Dana toward the Sangha of Buddhas Savakas and those following them and not thought for any kind of trade or exchange for low purpose for the world. Feel also always welcome here.

That would be needed if seeking after servant and gain, yes. But there is nothing to worry in this regard. Who ever is up to merits, who ever prevers to seeks for gain. Personal choices, mr/mrs Binocular. How ever, Sadhu if out of compassion and feeling obligated and but not in the case if out of indirect way demand.

To keep ones teacher, just as sample, out of danger of wrong deeds, is a kind of service, duty and part of the things needed to be done to keep a good relation and the object of it, in good condition.
