Quote of the Moment

"The bodhisattva should adopt the same attitude towards all beings. One's mind should be even towards all beings. One should not handle others with an uneven mind, but with a mind which is friendly, well-disposed, helpful, free from aversions avoiding harm and hurts. One should handle others as if they were one's mother, father, son, or daughter. As a savior of all beings should a bodhisattva behave towards all beings. So should one train oneself wanting to know full enlightenment."
