Description

Sometimes people wonder about who we should give gifts to. Once King Pasenadi asked the Supreme Buddha who he should give gifts to. The Buddha told him to give wherever made him happy. Then King Pasenadi asked him where gifts should be given so they produce the greatest results. In the sermon today, we are going to learn about the difference between giving to an ordinary beggar and giving to the Mahā Saṅgha.
