This Sunday is Mother’s Day in many countries around the world. In order to celebrate this occasion we have a very special teaching that the Karmapa gave in Berlin where he talks about his experiences with his mother and father in Tibet.
During this wonderful talk His Holiness describes how his mother’s kindness acted as an extremely important teacher for him growing up, and how this natural loving kindness is actually very important to cultivate as a Buddhist practitioner.
He also touches on his decision to give up eating meat and how we can all train our minds by tapping into the compassion and kindness that arises quite naturally when we see sentient beings suffering.
