Long Life

Questions from the audience:
My father lives long.  Now he is 95 years old and was rarely sick seriously.  What kind of retributions he did in the previous lifetime causes him to be healthy and live long?

Why did my grandpa and grandma live long?  My grandpa passed away when he was 103 years old and my grandma passed away when she was 86 years old.  What retributions caused them able to stand on their feet although they came from China with nothing but they had their own shop at last?

Your father is healthy and lives long because he made medicines and gave them to his neighbors in the previous lifetime.  This merit affects him to be healthy and live long.

Your grandpa lived for 103 years because he preferred to make the medicine merit and gave food to the poor regularly.  These merits caused him to be healthy and live long.

Your grandma lived for 86 years.  She lived long but less than your grandpa because she preferred to make the same merits but she did less than your grandpa.

These world support merits caused them able to stand on their feet even though they came from China with nothing.
