“Bodies and Minds of Living Beings”

“Even if a person in unintelligent in mind and presents only paltry offerings, if he extends them to an individual who embraces the truth, he will receive tremendous benefits. How much more so would be the benefit of those who make sincere offerings to the true Law!”

(Gosho, p. 1217)
