“Buddhism still exists because of giving
If we stop giving for one month
Not offer food to any monks
Not give anything throughout the country
The religion will be ended, monks and novices will disrobe
Nothing left
If there is no giving, there is no progress
So, if you make Buddhism thrive, you will move forward too”

The Most Ven. Phramongkolthepmuni (Sod Candasaro)’s teaching
