Giving Fearlessness

"Giving fearlessness" means curing disease, protecting others from misfortune,
directing them out of chasms, escorting them out of danger
and removing hindrances to their achievement of siddhi and moral conduct.
Truly, practice this type of generosity as much as you can.
Protect others from the "four injuries" :
legal punishment, enemies, thieves, and wild animals.
Then pray for the ability to save them from the miseries of the three lower realms.
