Jesus & Buddha ~ The Parallel Sayings
JESUS: He looked up and saw rich people putting their gifts into the treasury; he also saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. He said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them; for all of them have contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in all she had to live on.”
Luke: 21: 1-4
BUDDHA: Giving is the noble expression of the benevolence of the mighty. Even dust, given in childish innocence, is a good gift. No gift that is given in good faith can be called small; its effect is so great.
Jatakamala 3: 23
