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.

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.

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.
