    A truly beautiful and inspiring passage. This reminds us all ,that, our interactions have meaning and true purpose. The comfort and safeness of a child to ask a deep question from her own growing, learning and inquisitive mind, As important as the question is, more importantly is the reply, not so much in the format explained, but to have the respect and care to answer the child the best one can, to be as one with the child without ego or mental nature running wild, Instead there was a responsibility, a stillness, a calmness and pure value and worth shown to the child, allowing the child to follow the answering story and to grow and understand from that..

    The mother also practiced stillness and great self, by allowing a universal growth to occur..

    Lobsang spiritual graciousness shows us that, we are all child and adult working as one... learning and growing together, that inner soul connecting.... And that’s a beautiful lesson....
