O.H.M. is the acronym for Overtures Honoring Mindfulness, a collection of the written word that speaks to my heart, mind & soul.

Visakha, Buddha's chief patroness, said something like this about the fruits of generosity:

When I remember my acts of generosity, I shall be glad. When I am glad, I am happy. When I am happy, my body will be tranquil, and when my body is tranquil I will feel pleasure. When I feel pleasure I will be concentrated. And when I am concentrated that will bring about the Seven Spiritual Factors of Awakening.
