MN142 Dakkhinavibhanga Sutta - the Exposition on Offerings | Ajahn Brahmavamso | 8th July 2007
Ajahn Brahm discusses the Buddha's teachings on the exposition on the merit made through offerings to others - the 142nd sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya, the Dakkhinavibhanga Sutta.
"When his step-mother Mahāpajāpatī wishes to offer him a robe for his personal use, the Buddha encourages her to offer it to the entire Saṅgha instead. He goes on to explain that the best kind of offering to the Saṅgha is one given to the dual community of monks and nuns, headed by the Buddha," Sutta Central.
