One bodhisattva paying respects to another !


True religious teacher in action!

It’s great to see a high religious teacher putting his teachings into action. His Holiness, the Karmapa, a high Tibetan Buddhist leader went to Kolkata to pay tribute to a great Christian bodhisattva (Mother Teresa) on her birth centenary. Through his action the Karmapa is showing us he appreciates the self-sacrificing task Mother Teresa had taken upon herself during her lifetime. His action acknowledges the true meaning of the word ‘compassion’ as compassion was what Mother’s work amongst the poorest of the poor was all about.

See here – A wonderful example !

While the world now practises ‘hollow greetings’, ‘plastic smiles’ and ’empty promises’, where insincerity rules the day it is certainly encouraging to see religious leaders still holding firmly to the teachings of love and peace of their faiths. May other religious leaders carry out more of such beautiful gestures for their followers to emulate and may the world’s religions help bring joy and happiness to us, the inhabitants of this world.
