Greetings,

I find suttas like this useful as a checklist... what am I doing right and the moment and what am I doing wrong? What needs more work?

Heres a great commentary to this sutta:

Life's Highest Blessings The Maha Mangala Sutta translation and Commentary by Dr. R.L. Soni

http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... el254.html

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
