Bhagava: (the only) one able to give (his own). Only an Araht is real owner of the Dhamma.
Who are the owner of the Dhamma? The Buddha and his Noble disciples, are the owner of the Dhamma, having seen it by themselves, made it their own. The first seven persons are particulary owner.
Faith and Dhamma-followers are those helping the owner to carry.
Those outside the Noble Domain are debters or even thieves, making use of it and it's lable.
On the conventional level the Savaka Sangha of the Buddhas monastic disciples is the owner and carrier. Althought there are many this days who actually steal their heritage for their lifelihood, and monks selling of the heritage, transgressing strongly and heavy in doing so, even when monks give away heavy possession, as the Buddha said, it still belongs to the Sangha.
That is why the wise old never keeped such in there houses but brought it quickly back to a good monastery so that it could benefit many for a long time.
Don't get involved in fencing! Be quick if realizing t9 be in the middle of a plunderer-crowd!
Don't forget "Namo..." if having borrowed for possible deliverance.
"It is in dependence on me as an admirable friend that beings subject to birth have gained release from birth, that beings subject to aging have gained release from aging, that beings subject to death have gained release from death, that beings subject to sorrow, lamentation, pain, distress, & despair have gained release from sorrow, lamentation, pain, distress, & despair. It is through this line of reasoning that one may know how admirable friendship, admirable companionship, admirable camaraderie is actually the whole of the holy life." the threefold refuge
People are shameless in times of plunderer, but the easy way to act common wrong does not prevent from the effects, and tears will not help once seeing that having act as the greatest thief of ones parents.
