Sayadaw U Sanda’s donation on 13 September 2015

Summary of Sayadaw U Sanda’s Dhamma talk today is as follows:
We all have parents who take care of and nurture us from the time we are in mothers’ wombs. They give us loving kindness and compassion. When we are successful, they are happy and ecstatic. When we lead our lives peacefully with our family, work and friends, they feel equanimous. We are very grateful to them for their loving kindness, compassion, happiness and equanimity. The Buddha said, their loving kindness, compassion, happiness and equanimity are too great to pay back to our parents even though you treat them in a very special way like you put them on your shoulders and clean up their messes, even though you become a king of a country and even though you become a very wealthy and successful person. The Buddha, however, said the best way how to pay back the gratitude to them is:
1. Encourage the parents to have more faith if they lack of faith in the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha;
2. Encourage them to be more charitable if they are stingy and not giving;
3. Encourage them to have high moral, if they lack of the morals; and
4. Encourage them to learn and practise Dhamma, Vipassana Meditation, leading to Panna and ultimately Nibbana (Nirvana) if they lack of Vipassana Panna. Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!    IMG_3405IMG_3423IMG_3422IMG_3410IMG_3398IMG_3387  IMG_3389IMG_3388IMG_3384 IMG_3386IMG_3385IMG_3390IMG_3383 IMG_3391 IMG_3393 IMG_3394 IMG_3395 IMG_3396  IMG_3399 IMG_3400 IMG_3401 IMG_3403  IMG_3406 IMG_3407 IMG_3408 IMG_3409  IMG_3411 IMG_3413 IMG_3414 IMG_3415 IMG_3416 IMG_3417 IMG_3419 IMG_3420
