House Dana

"...May the Buddha please accept our invitation for tomorrow's meal, together with the community of monk." And the Buddha consented by his silence.

The next day, the buddha went together with the community of monks to the house of Sunidha and Vassakara... And Sunidha and Vassakara themselves attended on the buddha & the monks, serving them with the best food that they had... "

Do u ever heard house dana before? This practice of inviting monks to your house to have a meal has been carrying on dating back till the Buddha's Time!
