Kind and True Words

Shambhala Mountain Colorado golden buddha by eva the dragon 2012

My mother, my 10-year old daughter, and I visited the Shambhala Mountain Center.  We waited until the lone monk finished her prayers in the stupa before we sat for a few minutes in meditation.  My daughter finished first.

Later, I asked her, “What happened during your prayer?”

She said,  “I asked the golden woman, ‘how is your life’?”

“And what did she say?”

“She said ‘Good’.  Then she told me she was happy I was here.”

Only a child without worries would think of asking Buddha, “How are you today?”

When words are both true and kind, they can change our world. Buddha
