This is auspicious, 8-12

Reverence, humility,

Contentment, and gratitude,

Hearing the Dharma at the right time

—This is most auspicious.

 

Patience and compliance,

Hearing from the monks,

And opportune discussion of the Dharma

—This is most auspicious.

 

Self-restraint and a holy life,

Seeing the Four Noble Truths,

And realizing nirvana

—This is most auspicious.

 

When affected by worldly conditions,

If one’s mind remains unshaken,

Sorrowless, stainless, and secure,

—This is most auspicious.

 

Those who perform such deeds

Are undefeated by enemies

And gain happiness everywhere.

This is most auspicious.

 

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Mangala Sutra
