Today we are going to learn the next blessing in the Mahamangala sutta. Do you remember all the blessings you have learned before? If not, you can go back and listen to those shows. Just go to the show notes on the website and click on the link for the whole series of talks. The blessing we will learn today is called heedfulness, or diligence. In the sermon we will get many similes and stories to help us understand this very important word. It’s a blessing so important that the Supreme Buddha said that all the other good qualities he taught us can fit into this one quality of heedfulness.
