The text describes the merit derived from organizing a Therabhiseka (pouring water on a Venerable Monk) ceremony. In the Buddha’s lifetime, King Pasendikosala asked the Buddha about the merit derived from holding a Therabhiseka ceremony. The Buddha delivered a sermon with the following story: a king named Vijaya ruled Visala City. The king had the religious faith in the Teachings of the Buddha, he therefore ruled his citizens with royal virtues. One day, the king and his followers organized a Therabhiseka ceremony for some great monks. When he died, he was born in the heaven and possessed heavenly properties.
