Buddha on Gratitude~ Suttas
"A good person (sappurisa)is grateful (katannu)and helps in return (katavedi). This gratitude, this helping in return is praised by fine people. It is the attitude of a good person."
my reflection: How cool is that....Buddha is teaching us an attitude of gratitude!
Buddha you rock!
What is Sutta?
The Sutta Pitaka (suttapiṭaka; or Suttanta Pitaka; cf Sanskrit सूत्र पिटक Sutra Pitaka) is the second of the three divisions of the Tipitaka or Pali Canon, the great Pali collection of Buddhist writings, the scriptures of Theravada Buddhism. The Sutta Pitaka contains more than 10,000 suttas (teachings) attributed to the Buddha or his close companions.
