Magnificent is Merit »
Drop of Dhamma Delight!


Magnificent is much Merit well done in good time!

The Blessed Buddha explained DOING GOOD like this:
Here and now the good-doer ever 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
their prior good actions. Dhammapada Illustration 16 Background Story 16

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

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