REQUESTING A CHILD TO FINANCE IN MERITORIOUS ACTS, BOTH THE MOTHER AND CHILDREN WILL HAVE MERITS

Question: Some elderly mothers are not financially sound but wish to volunteer at many of Master Lu’s Public Talks; therefore, they approach their children to assist financially. Will this create a new karma for the mother to repay the child again? Under such a situation, will the child have any merits?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Both the child and the mother will have merits. So long as it is a righteous act, it is perfectly alright for the mother to ask for financial assistance from the child. The mother is not using it to gamble away. After all, she has raised the child to adulthood and providing mother with some money to accumulate merits, the child will also benefit from it. However, the child must give the money willingly and the mother must not force the child to give.
