139 The Blessing of Giving in a Proper Way: Mangala Sutta part 5

Today we are going to learn about the blessing of being generous and the things we need to do to practice generosity in the best way. We’ll learn about five things we need to remember when we are giving things to others that will help us bring the most blessings and happiness into our lives. They’re so important you may even want to write them down. You might find it helpful to get a blank notebook and write down the things you learn on each show. Not because there will be a test, but because it’s important to remember and actually try and follow the advice we learn from the Supreme Buddha.
