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.
