Giving Thanks

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.”
-The Buddha (Prince Gautama Siddharta, 563-483 BC)
To blogger buddies in the United States, happy Thanksgiving. To blogger buddies elsewhere, happy Thursday.

  1. Just saw this -- that is so very classic Buddhist, at least to my limited understanding. Have only read the Dhammapada.

    Thanks for sharing.
