Once King Bimbisara gave the Buddha a dane, and his ancestors, who were pretas, came to see it. He offered them no pin; so they were sorely disappointed. In the night there was a great noise round his palace, so next morning he went to the Buddha and asked if this boded ill for himself or his kingdom. The Buddha said not so, but explained what had happened. So, to remedy his oversight, Bimbisara gave him a dane that day too and offered the pin to the pretas. The above statement contains small but telling points of doctrinal inconsistency: it is not clear why pretas who have already come to the dane (as in the story of Bimbisara) should be unable to rejoice at the merit unless it is specifically offered; nor why gods, who in other contexts are always offered merit, are in this context said not to need it.
