- Dear James,
I'm still thinking about the words "luck" and
"kamma".I mean why do people think four-leaf clovers
Did the Buddha think four-leaf clovers were lucky?
I was wondering, did you read my letter on the 11th of
October, because I didn't see any reply . But it
doesn't matter if you're busy.

I replied to your other letter, so now I will reply to this one. I
think that people believe that four-leaf clovers are lucky because
they are rare. It takes some looking around to find one (though with
genetic engineering I believe that they have figured out how to grow
them by the hundreds...cheaters! ;-). No, the Buddha didn't think
that four-leaf clovers where lucky. Actually, I doubt that he even
saw a four-leaf clover because he lived in India and they don't grow
there. They only grow is wet climates like Ireland and Scotland (and
other wet parts of the world); India is predominately dry for most of
the year and then gets a lot of rain once a year. But either way, he
didn't believe that any sort of object could be lucky.
