I have been accumulating 20 cent coins in case I need them for the
payphone in the psychiatric hospital if I have to go there again
(late March is usually a difficult time of year for me). I have
decided to dare to cash them in and donate the precise amount (e.g.
$39.80) to the Hospital with the aspiration for the power of the
action to help me be healthy and not to have to go to hospital again
When Ajahn Jagaro disrobed in 1995 we collected donations to help him
start in the lay life. I liked the idea of giving him a unusual
precise amount like $1012.70 but from memory the committee topped up
the donation to $1,000 exactly. I was disappointed that the amount
did not communicate the little donations that many people including
I found it moving after the Tsunami that little children were
donating their life savings of $20 to the appeal.
Thanks for listening.
