In the last episode we started to learn about a previous life of the Supreme Buddha when he was named Visahya. If you haven’t listened to that episode, you should go back and listen to it now. But just to refresh our memory, the Bodhisatta was practicing giving so much that god Sakka noticed. God Sakka became worried that the Bodhisatta would take over his position of lord of the gods because he was working so hard to practice generosity. So God Sakka took away all of the Bodhisatta’s possessions. But remember, the Bodhisatta still didn’t stop giving. Today we’ll learn what happened at the end of the story.
