Violence breeds violence, love breeds love. Thirst for violence cannot be quenched by violence. It can be quenched only by forgiveness and love. Esho dhamma santatano, This is the eternal law, says the Buddha.The highest form of love is self transcendence as displayed by the Baba.
I practice loving kindness meditation to cultivate compassion, acceptance, forgiveness and love for me and for others including those who have hurt me.I teach Peace Education to children and teachers in a Montessori School. We all practice loving kindness meditation together and share our growth experiences. We all are witnessing antagonism, divisiveness, aggressiveness, hostility and violence everyday. We all need to cultivate compassionate understanding of each other and learn to build bridges rather than walls.Building more and more weapons of destruction are going to back fire and may cause universal inhalation.
We all need to realize and remember that the seeds of violence are planted in the minds of people and the seeds of peace can also be p[anted in the minds of people.We all need to learn to make wise choices to preserve life, human as well as the life of the mother planet.
May we cultivate loving kindness to nurture the tree of life!
