“You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy.”

The earliest source I’ve found is a 2007 book, “The Mystery of Happiness,” by Evelyn Higgins, where it’s already ascribed to the Buddha. Maybe she got it from some website, or maybe she made it up. I’m sure it’s not from the Buddha.

One thought on ““You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy.””

  1. Well it’s a paraphrase, but again whether it’s actually FROM the Buddha…..

    There’s a Tibetan school exercise known as Lojong which translates to “mind training” in English and it’s a series of maxims or slogans. The appropriate one here seems to be “Always maintain a joyful mind”. A good explanation is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lojong ( slogan 21)
