A personal place with happy memories for Loving Kindness meditation
"We meditate for various reasons. Peace of mind we all badly need. Therefore, when we meditate, either consciously or unconsciously we aim at peace of mind. Meditation give us peace of mind without a tranquilliser. And unlike a tranquilliser, the peace of mind that we get from meditation does not fade away. It lasts for good in some corner of the inmost recesses of our aspiring heart."
- Sri Chinmoy
Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.
Each Wednesday evening during summer, the residents of this French village eat together - young and old. Kindness and love are evident at every table.
Kindness in words creates confidence, kindness in thinking creates profoundness, kindness in feeling creates love.
