IS DONATING TO MONKS FAR NOBLER THAN DONATING TO BUDDHA?

A MONK WAS RAISING HIMSELF UP INDIRECTLY. HE DID THIS BY RAISING OTHER MONKS UP. HE WANTED TO BE EVEN ABOVE BUDDHA IN NOBILITY BY SHEER NUMBER OF MONKS. THAT IS, HE USED THE “QUANTITY” YARDSTICK.

HOWEVER, FOR LAY PEOPLE, HE SAID MILLIONS OF THEM DIDN’T MATTER. THEY WON’T EVER BE NOBLER THAN MONKS. THIS TIME, HE WAS USING THE “QUALITY” YARDSTICK.

CONTRADICTION: HE DIDN’T APPLY THE “QUALITY” YARDSTICK WHEN HE COMPARED MONKS WITH BUDDHA!

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
