Merit is not an easy concept for Westerners to understand.
In one way, however, it is simple.
When you act with compassion, free from anger, that is merit.
When you make a gift freely, or cultivate peace within yourself, or for others, that is merit.
When you care for another; showing your love, helping them heal, that is merit.
When you devote your efforts to transforming the suffering of the world, the pollution of the planet, and the inner toxicity that plagues us all, you are manifesting the power of merit.
Whatever you do out of goodness is a manifestation of merit.
