Accumulation of merit
The second part of developing our bodhichitta qualities is the accumulation of merit. A basic description is to not collect things for yourself, instead to be freely giving. Instead of doing an action to take credit, you do it because it is the right thing to do. In Buddhist countries helping build a Temple or Wat, or build a retreat are common ways to make merit. The proviso is that you give with an open heart, not expecting anything specific to result from the action. In Western countries it has become common to sell naming rights to various public buildings such as arenas, stadium, convention centres, or a new wing at the hospital etc. Giving to the construction of a temple does not mean it is named after you. You are doing the action and letting the future be as it may.
