merit

Good karma, the energy generated by positive actions of body, speech and mind. [WOMPT] [LLB 2002]

The first of the two accumulations. “Merit” is also sometimes used loosely to translate the Tibetan terms dge ba (virtue, positive action) and dge rtsa (sources of good for the future). [TLWF 2011] [ZT 2006]

Positive energy arising from wholesome action or virtue (dge ba). There are two kinds of merit: (1) mere "merit tending to happiness" (bsod nams tsam po pa or bsod nams cha mthun) and (2) "merit tending to liberation" (thar pa cha mthun), on the basis of which the mind progresses toward emancipation from saṃsāra. "Stainless merit" (zag med dge ba) is merit tending to liberation,
accumulated on the five paths. [CMH 2001] See also Virtue tending to happiness; Virtue tending to liberation. [TPQ]

The first of the two accumulations. "Merit" is also sometimes used loosely to translate the Tibetan terms dge ba (virtue, positive action) and dge rtsa (sources of good for the future). [GWPT 2004]
