The gift of light will allow us to have beautiful eyes, superb vision, beautiful radiance, a bright mind, luminous wisdom and, ultimately, attain the Buddhahood or Dhammakaya inside ourselves.

Later on, her good karma caused her to be reborn as a beautiful lady with a golden subtle complexion. After she ordained to become a Bhikkhuni (female Buddhist monk), she managed to attain enlightenment quickly and went on to become a female disciple monk who was recognized by the Lord Buddha as the one who was excellent in recalling past lifetimes. From this story, we can conclude that the act of worship to the Triple Gem is indeed the opportunity to develop our own mind by realizing and welcoming the wholesomeness of the Triple Gem into our own heart, similar to opening the lid of a crystal jar to receive drops of clean rain from the sky. This is why the act of worship allows us to cultivate both faith and wisdom simultaneously.
