Lesson 10: TO OFFER A MOTHER THE FLESH OF HER OWN CHILD (Cho người mẹ thịt của chính đứa con bà)

Contemplation on “Fourteen Grievous Failures of a Buddhist Practitioner” Lesson 10: TO OFFER A MOTHER THE FLESH OF HER OWN CHILD In the 7th failure, Master Gampopa has pointed out the mistake in almsgiving and charitable activities which are rooted from wrong livelihood (with objects gained from theft, robbery and fraudulence).
