Today's Daily Dharma: Extending Arms and Hearts
Extending Arms and Hearts
we talk of the bodhisattva vow in Buddhism, we talk about extending our
arms and our hearts outward, about reaching out to the whole world and
embracing all, without exception. We talk about truly seeing the ones
standing before us and loving them deeply, just as they are, with their
many faults. That's the secret of the spiritual path.
