136 To Support Mother and Father: Mangala Sutta part 4

If you haven’t listened to the previous episodes on the Maha Mangala Sutta, you might like to start at the beginning of the series. Click here. But you don’t have to!

You know, the Supreme Buddha taught us that we can consider him to be the best kalyanamitta of all, because he is the one who discovered and taught us the Four Noble Truths. Another kalyanamitta who is very important to us is our parents. Because they are our very first teachers and they teach us about the world. For many of us, they are the ones who first taught us about the Supreme Buddha’s Dhamma. They may even be helping you to listen to this programme right now.

Today we’ll learn more from the Maha Mangala sutta. And one of the blessings we’ll learn is the blessing of supporting our mother and father. So as we listen to the sermon, I want you to think specifically about ways you can help support your mother and father.
