It enriches those who receive,
without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,
cheer to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone
until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
Hi richard , Thank you for your phone message. I was really pleased to hear you had such an important realisation. Yes, those study lectures really do change your practise/ life if you watch them reguarly. There are also excellent experiences on the site so I reckon its a bit like doing Trets online:) ...there si never an exscuse to feel down as I can always find inspiration onthe site .
Anyway hope to catch up with you soon..I will probably be going to a Nigerian restaurant in Swiss Cottage with my younger sis, friends /members on my birthday around 26 March & will send you the address in case you like to come along and have some more suya! I hope that Nancy is doing okay and i will chant for her wellbeing strong faith and early release. Ciao!Mariamx
Thank you for being my friend in faith.
Each and everyone of us has a mission and my mission is to spread Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism in the Buddhaland called Malaysia. Let's strive and work harder for kosen-rufu in our respective area. Have a nice weekend. Cheers.
