Today is Mother’s Day in England, and this quote from The Dharmmapada – The Sayings of the Buddha, is in honour our mothers and our whole family.

When a need has arisen, friends are a blessing,

A blessing is contentment with whatever (there be)

A blessing is the wholesome deed at the end of life,

A blessing it is to relinquish all sorrow.

blessed-kateri-3of9

A blessing in the world is reverence for mother,

A blessing, too, is reverence for father,

A blessing in the world is reverence for the recluse,

A blessing too reverence of the Brahmana

original National Geographic article A BEDOUIN...

A blessing is virtue into old age,

A blessing is faith established,

A blessing is the attainment of insight-wisdom,

A blessing it is to refrain from doing wrongs.

The Mother, 1994
