“Alms bowls of monks are blessing bowls of all sentient beings. The ones who give alms to monks will get a lot of blessings. Even if we give just a bit of rice, we will never suffer from hunger or be born into a poor family in many future lives. Hence, Buddha taught His disciples to hold their alms bowls for mendicancy. Although Monks go on alms round to maintain their lives, they help all sentient beings cultivate their fields of merits.” — Thay Thich Truc Thai Minh
