I was revisiting Sedaka Sutta earlier (also known as "The Bamboo Acrobat") and thought I'd post a link to Bhikkhu Sujato's translation:

Comments welcome :hands:

Does "khanti (https://suttacentral.net/define/khanti)", usually translated as "patience" or "forbearance", mean "acceptance (https://suttacentral.net/sn47.19/en/sujato#3.5)"? :confused:

What a nice Sutta! The acknowledgment that we must cultivate mindfulness meditation to help both ourselves and others is inherent to Buddhist practice in all traditions that I have studied.

I think its its a good idea to look at more than one translation of a sutta ....because its been translated as "patience" in this version:

https://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/sn/sn47/sn47.019.olen.html

also by Bhikkhu Bodhi here:

..and certainly "patience" seems a better fit than "acceptance".
