How wonderful to sponsor rare people who have the capacity for solitary retreat by providing them with sustenance and the hermitages suitable for their Dharma training. Meditators work 24 hours a day for all sentient beings; there is no way they can have a normal job. Meditators are the heart of Dharma, they keep the Enlightened Experience alive. Without them, dharma exists only in books and in empty spoken words.
——if WE aspire to do solitary retreat, we can create the cause when we sponsor others who do. Also, Jetsun Milarepa said — meditators and sponsors go to enlightenment together.
——The last of the 10 Endowments of the Perfect Human Rebirth is to live in a land where Dharma practitioners are supported. Supporting meditators in countries actually makes those countries a Central Land, thereby giving humans born in those countries the potential to have a Perfect Human Rebirth…not an ordinary one…How wonderful is that!
