Boundless Blessings Of Joyful Helping


– 四十二章经:第十章

The Buddha said, ‘Seeing one on the path of giving, and helping him [or her] joyfully, attains blessings that are extremely great.’
A Śramaṇa [monk] asked, ‘Do these blessings exhaust?’
The Buddha said, ‘For example, [with the] fire of one torch, numbering thousands of hundreds of people [can] each with torches come to share and receive it, for cooking food and removing darkness, [yet] this torch is as before, the blessings are also like this.’
