154 Does Wishing Work?

Have you ever wished for something? Maybe wished for a special toy or game? Maybe you wished that you could go to a friend’s house to play. Maybe you wished that you could be good in sports.

I want you to listen very carefully and memorize what the five things are. I also want you to pay attention to how the Supreme Buddha tells us we can actually get the things that people wish for.
