                                                                                     Discourse of Supreme Happiness




                                                                           
                               
                                 

Many deities and humans,
yearning after good,
have pondered on Blessings.
Pray, tell me the Supreme Blessings.


Not to follow or associate with the foolish,
to associate with the wise,
and honor those who are worthy of honor.
This is the Supreme Blessing.



To reside in a suitable locality,
to have done meritorious actions in the past,
and to have set oneself on the right course
This is the Supreme Blessing.



Vast-learning, perfect handicraft,
a highly trained discipline
and pleasant speech.
This is the Supreme Blessing.



The support of mother and father,
the cherishing of spouse and children
and peaceful occupations.
This is the Supreme Blessings.


Liberality, righteous conduct,
the helping of relatives
and blameless action.
This is the Supreme Blessing


To cease and abstain from evil,
forbearance with respect to intoxicants
and steadfastness in virtue.
This is the Supreme Blessing.



Patience, obedience,
sight of the holy ones
and religious discussions at due season.
This is the Supreme Blessing.



Self-control, pure life,
perception of the Noble Truths
and the realization of Nibbana.
This is the Supreme Blessing



He whose mind does not flutter,
by contact with worldly contingencies,
sorrowless, stainless and secure.
This is the Supreme Blessing.



To them, fulfilling matters such as these,
everywhere invincible,
in every way moving happily.
These are the Supreme Blessings
