Sun@BGF – Ten Paths to Happiness with Venerable You Deng
About the Talk
Sumati Sutra is part of a larger sutra called the Great Treasures Collection Sutra (Mahāratnakūṭa Sūtra). This sutra is about Sumati, an 8-year old daughter of a famous Buddhist elder, who frequently attended the Buddha’s talks on Vulture Peak, Northeast of Rajagrha. Sumati asked the Buddha ten interesting questions in finding ways to happiness. The questions range from ways in having elegant and proper appearance, attaining wealth and nobility, maintaining harmony among ourselves, born in the presence of a Buddha, travelling freely, living blamelessly, being trustworthy, eliminating Dharma obstructions and avoiding Maras.
