But you will fall into the hungry ghost path and become like me in three days.” Ananda was shocked and hurried to the Buddha to beg for salvation.
The Buddha said, “if you can give food to many hungry ghosts, you will not fall, but also prolong life and be lucky in case of trouble.” Ananda asked about the method of giving food.
