Meren was puzzled by the appearance. Why did the kind-hearted mother who prepared so much food and drink have to fall into the painful world of hunger? I decided to ask Buddha why.
The Buddha said, "Your mother was kind to you. However, your mother(Mako)I didn't do that. 」

One day, when Meren's mother was carrying food full of both hands, a monk asked, "Would you please give me something to eat?", and she said, "I don't have anything to give you because this is for you." Also, when Meren's mother had a big water bottle, the villager said, "It's hot and I'm going to fall down. Could you please divid the water in the bottle if you like? When I asked her, her mother said, "This is for me, so I have nothing to give you." After that, I threw away the food that I couldn't eat.
