quote of the month

"All sentient beings have at one time been your mother—birthing you, nursing you, caring for you through a helpless stage of life. Imagine this and generate appreciation and goodwill for all sentient beings, whether they cut you off in traffic, compliment your smile, or walk past you without a glance."

—A Tibetan teaching recounted in Sarah Aceto’s, “As If I Were Your Mother”13147786973_81c61737c6_o
