Mangala-gatha and other suttas

This was the first gatha in Satyasiddhisastra of Harivarman. There is a vol 1 and 2. Mine is 2. Is all based on sutras.


The most auspicious is the Buddha

Who is the highest teacher and the wisest leader

among men and gods.

The most auspicious is the person

Who has firm faith in the Buddha

And keeps pure conduct

The most auspicious is

to serve the learned, not to approach the ignorant

and pay homage to the worthy of homage.

Might be this be one was the said by King Asoka. :man_shrugging: But it’s interesting it just begins only different than the Pali. Too bad the beginning was only there.
