Some simple instructions for living a happy life, courtesy of the Buddha

Here are three brief sutras, which I have edited even further, that show how the idea of rebirth contributes to our compassion for others, as well as giving us a little comfort for ourselves.

  • Duggata Sutta -- The hard-times sutra
  • Sukhita Sutta -- The happy sutra
  • Mata Sutta -- The mother sutra
  • Samajivina Sutta -- Living in Tune
  • Soma Sutta -- Sister Soma
  • Kodhana Sutta -- An Angry Person (paraphrased)
  • Ambalatthikarahulovada Sutta -- Lesson for Rahula at Mango Stone (paraphrased)
  • Kucchivikara-vatthu -- The Monk with Dysentery
