The cooks of Sera Je
“Offering food to the monks of Sera Je is a way of collecting unbelievable merit because all the monks are the pores of the Guru. They are all disciples of the same Guru – His Holiness the Dalai Lama. By offering to pores of the Guru one collects more merit than offering to Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, as well as numberless statues, stupas and scriptures.
If you offer with the recognition that they are the Guru's pores then that is an unbelievable way to collect merit. This is the easiest way to collect skies of merit by offering and this is the best business.”
