Merit accumulation in our past lives
« on: August 08, 2016, 08:57:42 am »
I heard (online) following in a talk by a Sri Lankan bikku, Rajagiriye Ariyagnana.

"We had accumulated many merits in our past lives. If we stack things that we had given to Arhaths in our past lives it will rise upto a tall mountain..... Buddha had mentioned that we are not less with merits, there is no need to do more merits thinking that we don't have enough merits to attain Nibbana, but Buddha had mentioned that we had made many merits in our past lives, it's just a matter of awaking them up by practicing Five prospective and leading a good life etc....."

My question is: Had Buddha really mentioned that "there is no need to do more merits thinking that we don't have enough merits to attain Nibbana" and other related thing as above?

If so, can someone please guide me to a Sutta where I can verify this. I tried to find it online but failed.

Thank You!
