131 Associate with the Wise: Mangala Sutta Part 1
/

We should always remember that even just by coming together for this programme, we are following the Supreme Buddha’s instructions. Have you thought about that? When we listen to these teachings together we are associating with wise people. Who are the wise people? Well the most important wise person is of course the Supreme Buddha himself. When we listen to his teachings, then we are associating with him in a way. And when we learn about the great arahant disciples, we are also associating with them.

Today we’ll start to learn about the Mahmangala sutta. And one of the blessings we’ll learn about is this very blessing of associating with the wise. I know that most of you are really familiar with the Maha Mangala sutta, but starting today we’ll get to think very deeply about it.

We’ll also associate with some enlightened nuns and find out how they attained enlightenment by also associating with enlightened nuns.
