Sharing the good deeds?

Postby Ajisai » Sat Aug 24, 2013 2:26 am

Hello,

I finished a book about the 31 planes of existence and the author says it is possible to share the good deeds one does with other people/beings, for example the beings in the woeful realms who are not able to do good deeds by themselves.

I was just wondering: how are you supposed to share the benefit of your good deeds with others? :smile:
