before doing a good deed do i think i hope this gift of service or material object will benefit the recipient. or do i not have hope and think if this turns out to be benefical then i will have sympathetic joy. is hoping my good deeds are beneficial correct practice? or is it incorrect because my positive wishes might not come true?
