Material generosity . . . should be a gift of kindness that nurtures the moral nature of others as it shows them, very simply, that we care about them.

Emotional generosity. When we are generous with our time and our emotions, we help others overcome the hardships of life. Our laughter will help them endure, our kindness will keep them from fear, while our sensitivity will help them realize the oneness of all sentient beings.
