Returning to Australia after Dharma tour
I would like readers to understand the meaning of the word 'LOVE', which has enormous meaning. For instance 'Love of one's culture' indicates one's ethnicity; 'love of one's physical body' leads to cleanliness of oneself from all dirty materials. There exists numerous ways of expressing love: -
' Internal Love' leads one to get rid off temptations and delusion while practicing righteousness '
' Love of development' leads one to be studious '
' Love to be healthy' leads one to take care of one's mind to be happy andcontent, to sleep, eat and rest reasonably;'
' Love of advancement' leads one to seek high levels of education;'
' Love to be polite' leads one to eradicate coarse language and behaviour;'
' Love to be content' leads one to forego discontent and dissatisfaction;'
' Love oneself' is similar to love for others. If one wishes to know everything, one must be awaken at all times and then what one wishes to know will follow;
' Love of oneself is to develop one's mind '
' Love of one's family is to bring prosperity '
' Love of one's country is to develop the community '
' Love of one's temple and religion is to maintain the temple and the religion from being run down '
' Love of one's country is to be a good and law-abiding citizen '
' Love of forest leads to a fertile nature '
' Love of lakes and creek leads to abundant water creatures '
' Love of farms and fields leads to abundant in farm produce '
' Love of one's parents leads one to be grateful always '
' Love of one's teacher and master leads one to be studious '
' Love of a Buddhist monk is to listen to the teachings of Lord Buddha as well as to carry out the teachings in practice.
These are the source of the history of Buddhism which was discovered by Prince Siddhartha who introduced Buddhism to all beings including beings of the ‘Five Worlds' that has been practised until the present time. '
