Buddha-Direct 4606: Friendly + Unselfish = Honourable!


Daily Fine Words of the Blessed Buddha:

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Sangāhako mittakaro,
Vadaññū vītamaccharo,
Netā vinetā anunetā,
Tādiso labhate yasam.

Friendly + Unselfish = Honourable!
Who is hospitable, and friendly, generous and unselfish,
A guide, a teacher, a leader, such one will to honour attain.
Dīgha Nikāya 3.273

Among tigers, lions, leopards and bears I lived in the jungle.
None of them was frightened of me, nor did I fear any of them!
Uplifted by such universal friendliness, I enjoyed the deep forest.
Finding great solace in such sweetly silenced solitude…
Suvanna-sama Jātaka 540

May all creatures, all breathing living things;
All beings, one and all, without exception,
Experience good fortune only! 🙂
May they not fall into any harm.
Anguttara Nikāya II 72

With good will for the entire cosmos,
Cultivate an infinite heart and mind:
Beaming above, below, and all around,
Unobstructed, without trace of hostility.
Sutta Nipāta I
