I love the metaphor of planting the Twin Trees. Two hearts, minds and bodies bonding together , nourishing and taking care of each other and all connected with them. We have received gifts of love and caring from our ancestors, our guardians and we are continuing the same shade giving to each other and others and and planting the Tween Trees for the generations to come. This is our sacred responsibility called Dharma.
I strongly believe that we need to spend time with our children to talk about our ancestries, where we are coming from, how much sacrifice they have made for us and how grateful we are for having them in our lives.It is somewhat like modern scientists are indebted to the scientists who blazed a new path of discoveries and inventions. before them This applies to philosophers, musicians, writers and dancers. We all are indebted to our fore fathers and fore mothers.
In our family we spend time together talking about our ancestors and paying homage to them, offering our gratitude to their feet.
May we never forget the great gifts of life and love we have received from our parents and grand parents and great grand parents!!
