Magnificent is Merit well done in good time!

The Blessed Buddha explained DOING GOOD like this:
Here and now the good-doer rejoices...
Even so after passing away and re-emerging,
the doer of good reaps only joy and satisfaction ...
So both here and there the wise with merit well done
enjoys the purity of his prior good actions.

Just as one can make many varied bouquets from a single
big bunch of flowers, a mortal among the humans can
make many kinds of merit by doing various good deeds.

Those who honours those worthy of honour:
That is the Buddha and his disciples;
Who are unhindered, sorrowless, and fearless,
finders of Nibbana, their merit gained from such
worthy & well directed honour cannot be estimated
by anyone...

Friendship is the Greatest!
