He asked the Buddha to teach him how he could ensure his continued prosperity and happiness in this life, and in his future lives too. The Buddha then proceeded to give this discourse to Dighajanu and in doing so, used the simile of a great water tank collecting rainfall. He showed how wealth, both material and spiritual, can be similarly accumulated by anyone with the right qualities. By whatever means one engages in to earn a living, 44 he or she should be hardworking and not lazy. He or she should understand what needs to be done, learn how to do it properly, do it well, and also delegate work to others where appropriate.

2] This would mean good behaviour, loyalty, and children doing the best they can for the sake of their parents who have worked so hard to provide them with their inheritance, whether it is large or small. 35 [3] Parents are the first teachers their children have and should actively guide them to not only avoid bad deeds, but also to encourage them to do good deeds. There is no better way for parents to do this than by being good examples and role models for their children. [4] In the modern context, this duty means that parents should provide their children with at least a basic education.
