I’ve heard of this sutta from different teachers where meritorious actions are compared to one another. But I’m struggling to find the source. The formula goes something like “X is meritorious. Even more meritorious than x is y. Even more meritorious than y is z.”
Some of the actions that are compared are giving dana, cultivating metta and contemplating impermanence. It’s possible that there are more actions in the list. And it’s possible that there is mention of y-action for a finger snap being more meritorious than x-action. Does this ring any bells for anyone?
