Venerable Ekagatta discusses 82nd sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya: Ratthapala Sutta, "To Ratthapala".

"A wealthy young man, Raṭṭhapala, has a strong aspiration to go forth, but has to prevail against the reluctance of his parents. Even after he became a monk, his parents tried to persuade him to disrobe. The discourse ends with a moving series of teachings on the fragility of the world." Sutta Central.
