When Buddha was staying at Isipatana Marugadayavana in Varanasi, he talked about a poor man who was faithful and saw other people making merit (offerings) but he did not have anything to do so. One day he dug in the soil and made a stupa. He decorated the stupa with ornaments in order to worship the Triple Gem. Then he and his wife also offered food to monks. After their death, the merit from making the stupa supported them to be born as deities in the heaven with a castle and a lifespan for 84,000 years.
