Dedication of Merit from sitting Chan

I just finished a seven day Chan retreat. It was a very challenging, but ultimately inspiring experience in which many people from all walks of life came together in sincere practice. A few weeks earlier, I was at CTTB and appreciated hearing Master Heng Sure speak about the act of dedicating merit, so after finishing the retreat, I dedicated the merit from my practice to all living beings, wishing that they may swiftly accomplish Bodhi. As far as everyday things, there are a number of homeless people in the area where I live and when I pass them on the street, I try to make it a point to acknowledge them, whether simply with a smile and a “Hello”, a little conversation, or with some change or some food.
