Listening to the Dhamma or teachings of the Buddha is one of the ways to gain meritorious deeds. It has mentioned in books that at the time of the Buddha, one day Buddha preached Dhamma to his disciples. There was a frog listened to Buddha’s teachings. It did not mean frog understand the “Pali” language. It means, frog listened to the voice waves and the frog’s mind might have purified at the moment. So there was an old man came with a cane and without seeing the frog, this man stick the cane right on top of frog’s head. Frog died instantly and born in the celestial realm. Frog remembered while in celestial world that the last action before died was listened to the Buddha’s teachings which resulted in born in celestial world. Probably Buddha saw it or communicated with the frog’s spirit after died and appeared in celestial world because Buddha had various levels of wisdom to do such things that ordinary human beings cannot comprehend. The lesson is that purity in the mind listening to Dhamma Sermons allows us to gain meritorious deeds and Buddha stated in “Maha Mangala Sutta” that listen to the Dhamma as one of the auspicious acts. Likewise, Dhamma discussion also one of the auspicious acts which we can gain meritorious deeds. By committing all these acts, purity arise in the mind removing desire, delusion and anger in the mind which is how meritorious deeds generates in the mind.
