Health & Longevity

Related imageHaving freed a being led to the slaughterhouse, that being’s life is thus benefited. By completely abandoning harming beings, we will obtain longevity ourselves.

Being a healer, nursing the sick, and giving medicine —by engaging in deeds such as these, and by abandoning harming with stones and sticks— we will be free of illness.

—Vasubandhu

    Again, our teacher’s words hit the mark of compassion and kindness. I think of ANIMAL PLACE and how these two paragraphs define their purpose:saving and healing. If we cannot directly prevent death and heal illness, we CAN assist those who already do. Knowing what is right is easy, so do right! cheryla
