Happy Uposatha – Giving

Dhammapada Verse 224

Mahamoggallanapanha Vatthu

Saccam bhane na kujjheyya

dajja appampi yacito

etehi tihi thanehi

gacche devana santike.

Verse 224: One should speak the truth, one should not yield to anger, one should give when asked even if it is only a little. By means of these three, one may go to the world of the devas.

Sometimes I need a reminder that giving is always good and advisable, especially when I feel like I don’t have enough. And, when I take true stock, there has never been a time in this life when I haven’t.

May I always give even when I feel that I have little. May I never allow stinginess to win the day.
