12. THE ADVANTAGES OF CHERISHING OTHERS
Purpose: To remember the many benefits and advantages of cherishing others.
The precious mind that cherishes all living beings protects both myself and others from suffering brings happiness and fulfils our wishes.
Make the strong determination: “I must always cherish all living beings.”
This can often be hard to remember always. We get in a rush, we get upset at other simple mistakes. We forget to put ourselves in others shoes. We forget that all beings could have been our mother. But if we take a deep breath and say, I must cherish all living beings. Carrying this mantra throughout my day.
