And this is why….

And this is why I practice.

I believe, and follow, this quote with my whole heart.

“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.” ~ Buddha

    What a wonderful quotation.

    One of my favourite prayers is this one – I think that the author thought along the same lines as the Buddha.

    Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
    where there is injury,pardon;
    where there is doubt, faith;
    where there is despair, hope;
    where there is darkness, light;
    and where there is sadness, joy.

    O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
    to be consoled as to console;
    to be understood as to understand;
    to be loved as to love.
    For it is in giving that we receive;
    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
    and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

  2. Buddha’s teaching sums it all up doesn’t it. If we’re even able to cultivate this triple truth each day for the rest of our lives, that would be enough. Thank you for these insightful, beautiful messages.
