Appropriate Appreciation is Gratitude!
One should be grateful towards one’s Parents! Why so?
They have worked hard and very long raising one into being!
One should be grateful towards one’s Teachers! Why so?
They do much to make one learn and understand the good…
One should be grateful towards one’s Friends! Why so?
They have shown one an open kindness and much goodwill!
One should be grateful towards one’s Spouse! Why so?
They have loyally accompanied one along a long way…
What is the future kammic effect of gratitude or ungratefulness?
The one who is grateful will receive gifts and favours ever again!
The one who is ungrateful will never again receive gifts or favours !
Thankfulness wisely invested thus pays back quite a lot!
Therefore: Always Say Thanx!
