Reasons for Giving
By Ven Kumara
Venue: Hokkien Cemetery Hall
Have you ever pondered on your reasons for giving? Why do you give, for example when you do dana to us, the monks here at SBS?
In one sutta (AN 8.33), the Buddha spoke on 8 reasons for giving. Please listen carefully and see if you can find any of your reasons here.
Now among these many reasons for giving, which is the one that you think is the best? The last one? Of course! That is the best. So, hope that we will always bear this in mind the next time we give so that we can make the giving even more meaningful. SBS
