However overjoyed I felt from the merits I got from asking other people to make merit(do goodness), I felt that the merits I made for myself was more important. But then again I thought, " A poor person like myself does not have a lot of money to give to charity, how can I get a lot of merit?"
. Suddenly the words of wisdom from a respectable monk came to mind, "The easiest way that a person can gain the biggest merit without spending any money is practicing meditation." Those words of wisdom were the stating point that inspired me to meditate.
