[1][pts] "Bhikkhus, when three things are present, a clansman endowed with faith generates much merit.

What three?

(1) When faith is present, a clansman endowed with faith generates much merit.

(2) When an object to be given is present, a clansman endowed with faith generates much merit.

(3) When those worthy of offerings are present, a clansman endowed with faith generates much merit.

When these three things are present, a clansman endowed with faith generates much merit."
