Abstract

This article highlights the similarities on wellness dimensions and the Mahamangala sutta deshanawa in Buddhism.  The study has utilized the data from secondary resources such as text books, research articles, and relevant web sites. Gathered data were analyzed using the content analysis method. The factors included in the Maha Mangala Sutta preached by Lord Buddha 2600 years ago are similar to the contents of wellness components introduced by Prof. Bill Hettler in 1976.The MahaMangala Sutta comprises the manner in which how an individual should act and behave righteously in his child hood, young, middle and old ages. Similarly, Bill Hettler too has discussed in his wellness concept as to how one can lead a righteous and balanced life with the use of wellness dimensions.
