Chant Source Question

Postby danieLion » Sat Jun 15, 2013 7:03 am

Is the chant "Reflections on Sharings and Blessings" (verses of sharing and aspiration) from a sutta? If so, which one? If not, what's its origin?
Kindly,

Could you quote it here, please?

I wonder if that's the same one as "Reflections On Sharing Blessings" on pages 32-33 of the Amaravati Chanting Book?

Not that I could find when I looked for all the references during my time at Amaravati.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
