Chökyi Drakpa says:
- The first of these, generosity, is divided into
- material giving,
- giving the Dharma, and
- giving protection from fear.
- You should practise these three kinds of generosity according to your capacity. At the very least, you should offer Sur (burnt offerings) and water tormas, since this offering incorporates all three kinds of giving.
Generosity in which adverse factors have disappeared,
Endowed with wisdom that is non-conceptual,
Completely fulfills all wishes,
And brings all beings to maturity at the three levels.
- paramita of giving (Dharma Publishing)
