Precious Buddha’s teachings for women

Discussion:

A woman is considered successful in life, in addition to her own happiness, it is also joy and pride for her husband, children and the whole family. The role of women in the family is extremely important, so almost any woman strives to improve herself, towards success.

In the view of the Blessed One, a successful women First of all, you must be able to do the job well. In addition to housework, a woman must have a professional career to build a life with her husband and children. Not only has a highly professional career, but also has the ability to operate and manage personnel (servants and workers). For women today, achieving the above two criteria is normal, but in the time of the Blessed One, women were looked down upon and despised, this view was really radical.

Next, a successful woman must skillfully demonstrate the art of living in order to bring harmony in the family. Pleasing husband and children is not easy, requires a rich life experience, love, endurance and above all, sacrifice everything for the happiness of the family. After all, a successful woman must know how to take care of the family’s assets. Of the husband but the wife, so the woman’s internal role in the family is extremely important, which determines the survival of the whole family. It is a reasonable, balanced and basic expenditure regulation in revenue and expenditure, maintaining the results of labor and the family’s assets.

These are the basic factors that help a woman succeed in this life. However, in order to continue to maintain success in the future, a woman must strive to study and perfect herself, especially in terms of faith, precepts, generosity, and wisdom. To succeed in this life is difficult, but to succeed in future lives is even more difficult, because success is always accompanied by conceit, looking down on others.

Therefore, female laypeople must deeply perceive and immediately apply the Buddha’s teachings into practical life if you want to become a successful woman in this life and the next.
