Because one person, even if the Buddha sows affinity with one person only, if that person becomes liberated in the far, far, far future, when the Buddha becomes Buddha, then many of five, six, seven, nine generations will also be liberated. And then it affects his friends, whoever is around him, also affect other people around. How come many people make offering to the Buddha, for example, or paint the stupa and all that, supposed to be a lot of good merit, how come they don’t become Arhat, or they don’t become monks, or they don’t get enlightenment right away? Because the different karma bears fruit at different times. Whatever Buddha did, He always transferred this merit to Buddhahood, for forward Buddhahood.
