      "Friends:

      Generosity is the first Perfection:

      Generosity means willingness to give and share whatever.
      Generosity means magnanimous and open-handed liberality.
      Generosity means freedom from small and stingy pettiness.
      Generosity means practicing charity for the poor and unfortunate.
      Generosity means kind bigheartedness towards those worthy of it.
      Generosity means warm-hearted and altruistic unselfishness.
      Generosity provides the kammic cause for later wealth..
      Giving causes Getting... No Giving causes Poverty!
      ......
      ......
      Generosity is the first mental perfection (parami):
      Clinging and egoism creates internal panic and social tension.
      Giving and sharing creates internal elation and external harmony...
      What is gladly given, returns more than thousandfold!"
