We know that most of you don’t get the chance to go to a monastery every day and collect merit by worship the supreme Buddha and helping and worshiping the monks. But I think most of you live with your parents. Did you know that you can also collect powerful good karma by treating your parents respectfully? This is a chance we should never miss. Our parents can be a great source of merit for us. But we have to be careful, because if we don’t treat them properly, it can cause a lot of bad karma for us.
Have you ever scolded your parents before? I hope not. But many children do. Today, one of your Dhamma friends asks a question about why we collect especially bad karma when we scold our parents.
