The Buddha’s Words of Wisdom

“Is it possible, Lord, to see the visible results of generosity?”

And the Lord said: “Yes, it is possible to see the visible results of generosity. The giver, the generous one, is liked and dear to many. This is visible result of generosity. The good and wise follow him. This is a visible of generosity. A good reputation concerning him spreads about. This is a visible result of generosity. Again, in whatever company he enters, be it nobles. Brãhmins, householders or recluses, he enters with confidence and is untroubled. This is a visible result of giving. And finally, the giver, the generous one, after death is reborn in heaven. This is a result to be seen hereafter.”
