Life’s Highest Blessings

The Maha Mangala Sutta

By:  R.L. Soni

This work is a study of the Maha Mangala Sutta, an important discourse of the Buddha on the thirty-eight true blessings or true lucky signs (mangala). It contains universal, timeless teachings that lead to material as well as spiritual well-being and is very popular in Buddhist countries.

It is commonly believed that seeing a falling star or finding a four-leaved clover will bring good luck, but according to the Buddha these are not the true, supreme lucky signs. Therefore in the Maha Mangala Sutta, the Great Discourse on the Lucky Signs, he describes the truly good practices which gradually lead to fortune and peace.
