For Day 263: Respect for the Aged Is Rewarded Says Siddhartha Gautama

More from: The Chapter 8 of the Dhammapada entitled “Thousands” attributed to Siddhartha Gautama verse 10 speaks to the importance of respecting the aged.

Ah, maybe I’m living a long life because I have always dearly enjoyed being in the company of older people.  Do note that I also enjoy being in the company of younger people.

Here is the verse from Buddha:

10 “Whoever shows reverence and respect

for the aged

Is rewarded fourfold…

With long life, beauty, happiness and strength.”

I’m smiling and willing to receive those rewards.
