While residing at the Buppharam monastery in Savatthi, the Buddha talked to King Pasendi Kosala about the benefits derived from worshiping the Triple Gem with a flag. The Buddha gave an example: in the time of Vipassi Buddha, a troubled couple who had the most ardent religious faith made a flag in order to worship the Triple Gem. During preparing the flag, the husband suddenly died and because of his faith he entered the Tavatimsa Heaven as a divinity and possessed a huge amount of heavenly treasures.
