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.

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.

    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
