Happy Mothers Day 2010

This view may not be held by all who visit this blog, as I believe I have a diverse readership. In no way is it meant to offend those who don’t hold this belief, but is meant as a tribute and to give thanks.

As a Vajrayana practitioner it is believed that all beings, at some point from beginning-less time, were once our mothers. That being said, Happy Mother’s Day to you the reader, and thank you for your kindness.

As we go about our day, try this simple practice. When you see a stranger (or anyone else for that matter), visualize them as your mother. Remember the kindness shown to us as she raised us, carried us in her womb, gave birth to us, feeding us, sheltering us and so forth. Remember when she bandaged up our knee when we scraped it, or got a boo-boo? Our mother’s loved us unconditionally.

If for one day, minimum, we can all try to remember the love and compassion shown to us by our mothers. As we would never wish to see our own mother’s suffer, with this simple visualization, today we should not allow any being to suffer.
