Description About the author
 
Speaking of Merit is a collection of sixteen formal Buddhist expressions of appreciation for alms received -- some based on scriptural stories, others more contemporary in their origin. The book will be a handy reference for monks and MC's on the receiving end of alms throughout the English-speaking Buddhist world, particularly Buddhist charitable organizations who want to speak of merit.

Instead of merely saying 'we couldn't have done it without you', how can you touch a person with your words when thanking them for a gift? How can you move them, so they are inspired to give such gifts in the future? It is a problem faced by all charities reliant on philanthropy -- not only Buddhist temple communities where every meal is so graciously received. The Buddhist inspirational and appreciatory homilies expressed to givers of alms belong to a scriptural tradition that goes back more than 2,600 years. This book shares must-read information that is vital for those who are looking to express gratitude upon receiving alms.
