183 The Blessing of Giving Up Evil, Mangala Sutta part 9

Today we are going to learn an important Pāli word. The word is pāpa. In English, this word mean evil. Now, when the Supreme Buddha uses this word, he means all the different kinds of bad things we can do, not just the really really bad actions like killing someone. He taught us that giving up all kinds of evil actions is a blessing for our lives. It’s one more of the blessings we can find in the Mangala Sutta and we’ll learn about it today.
