Ken McLeod continues his commentary on the 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva with the 25th verse. Watch the other videos here.

 

25
If those who want to be awake have to give even their bodies,
What need is there to talk about things that you simply own.
Be generous, not looking
For any return or result—this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

 

It is challenging to let go of our attachment to results.
