Have you ever offered dāna to monks and shared merits with your departed relatives? Have you ever wondered about how that works? Well, today we’re going to hear about an incident that happened in the time of our Supreme Buddha where a ghost came back and asked his former brother for help. I know that may sound like a scary thing, having a ghost visit. But in this situation, the person wasn’t scared because he was a monk and understood all about ghosts. He knew exactly what to do to help this ghost, and soon we’ll know too.
