One of the things that’s so great about being a follower of the Supreme Buddha is that if we follow his advice, it brings us happiness right now as we practice his teachings, and it’s also guarenteed to bring us happiness in the future, either in a good rebirth or in attaining Nibbana. In some religions, the most people hope for is happiness in the future. But when we keep precepts, we avoid trouble here and now. When we practice generosity, we can be happy right away. And when we practice meditation, even if the benefits seem small at first, they quickly build up and we realize that it’s possible to be happy in a way that doesn’t depend on external things like material posessions. So today we’ll learn a verse in Pali that talks about this. Click on the show notes if you’d like to read them for yourself.
