MAY 14 Choosing Kindness: A Special Mothers Day Talk with Judith Sweet.
From the Buddhist point of view, cherishing others is the best method for establishing peace--peace within our family, our community, our country, and the world--as well as establishing our own inner peace.
One beautiful way to understand and practice cherishing others is to recognize the kindness of others, starting with our parents and extending our view out to others who have helped us. This attitude of loving kindness grows our good heart and in turn nourishes the growth of others' good qualities.
Thus we begin to understand that "we are all interconnected in a web of kindness form which it is impossible to separate ourself." (Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche)
