Lend a helping hand. Tidying and cleaning the centre, for all who visit.
Five good results come from cleaning our meditation room with this motivation:
(1) Our mind becomes clearer
(2) The minds of others who enter our room become clearer
(3) The Deities are delighted to enter our room
(4) We create the cause to be reborn with a beautiful form
(5) We create the cause to be reborn in a pure environment such as a Pure Land
While we are cleaning we should regard all the dust and dirt as the filth of our own non-virtuous actions and delusions, thinking ‘This is the dirt of my ignorance – I am removing it. These are the stains of my destructive deeds – I am eliminating them.’ If we have an especially strong emotional problem, such as strong desirous attachment, we can concentrate on it and clean vigorously, thinking ‘This is the grime of my attachment. I am extracting it from my mind”.
