New Wise Habit

Serving Up Sacca

ความซื่อสัตย์ (สัจจะ)

Fellow cooks, are you ready to add more ingredients to our soup pot today? The Kung Fu Chef applauds everyone for their efforts in using the last 2 ingredients (Sati, ‘being mindful and alert’ and Samathi, ‘being calm and focused’). Often, it does not take a lot of effort or time to serve up any of the wise habits that our capable Chef has introduced to us so far. There are many simple ways we can do so as evidenced by the letters you have sent in to Master Chef. Aiko, for example, practices staying calm during walking meditation, Eufa uses Sati and Samathi when colouring pictures and Nova always remembers to say thank you to her teachers after class.

Being truthful, Sacca or ความซื่อสัตย์ (สัจจะ) is another tasty ingredient that we can add in our daily lives. Today, Kru Noy acted as a student who loved to play the guitar and sing. He accidentally kicked Kru Michel’s vase when he was about to play the instrument. In came Kru Michel to find his vase and the flower on the floor. He thought a cat was responsible but Kru Noy told him the truth. This is not always easy but we can keep trying. See you next week!
