Chapter 19 The Mangala Sutta

Blessing

Thus have I heard: -

On one occasion the Blessed One was dwelling at the monastery of Anathapindika in Jeta's Grove, near Savantthi. Now when the night was far spent, a certain deity, whose surpassing splendor illuminated the entire Jeta Grove, came to the presence of the Blessed One and, drawing near, respectfully saluted Him and stood on one side. Standing thus, he addressed the Blessed One in verse: -

1. "Many deities and men yearning after good have pondered on Blessings, Pray, tell me the Highest Blessing"

The Blessed One answered him thus: -

2. "Not to associate with fools, to associate with the wise, and to honor those who are worthy of honor - this is the Highest Blessing."

3. "To reside in a suitable locality, to have done meritorious actions in the past, and to set oneself in the right course - this is the Highest Blessing."

4. "Much learning, perfect handicraft, a highly trained discipline and pleasant speech - this is the Highest Blessing."

5. "To support of father and mother, the cherishing of wife and children and peaceful occupations - this is the Highest Blessing."

6. "Liberty, righteous conduct and helping of relatives and blameless actions - this is the Highest Blessing."

7. "To cease and abstain from evil, forbearance with respect to intoxicants and steadfastness in virtue - this is the Highest Blessing."

8. "Reverence, humanity, contentment, gratitude and opportune hearing of the Dhamma - this is the Highest Blessing."

9. "Patience, obedience, sight of the Samanas and religious discussion in due season - this is the Highest Blessing."

10. "Self-control, the hold life perception of the Noble Truths and the realization of Nibbána - this is the Highest Blessing."

11. "He whose mind does not flutter by contact with world contingencies. Sorrow less, Stainless and Secure - this is the Highest Blessing."

12. "To them, fulfilling matters such as these, everywhere invincible, in every moving happily - these are the Highest Blessing."
