The twelve ways include such activities as: helping those who are suffering; helping those who are ignorant of means; helping the homeless; and helping those holding wrong views. These virtuous actions can be done in different situations, countries and time. practice is also already set up for you to do so. Tulkula will give you insights on how to put it all together.
