One Act of Kindness - 14sep21

A local Sri Lankan Buddhist monk

explained to his novice

that he longed to be of service to others,

and also that he was afraid

that he would not get the opportunity to do so.

He confided

that if he could help at least one person,

then he felt he could die happy.

That put me in remembrance

of “Attack of the Clones”

when Obi Wan Kenobi used the Jedi mind trick

on a drug dealer with the words,

“You do not wish to sell me

any death sticks,

you wish to go home

and rethink your life.”

Perhaps in one of the upcoming

Disney pulse Star Wars series

we’ll get to see if the dealer of death sticks

managed to turn his life around.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
