A powa ceremony is planned for Mimi at Kadampa Meditation Center, Washington in Seattle on Saturday, November 19th at 7pm. How fortunate we are to have this special practice to transfer the minds of deceased beings to Buddha's Pure Land. Please join with us in powa prayers if you can, either in Seattle or with spiritual friends in your home city.
In Eight Steps to Happiness Geshe-la says "'Self' and 'other' are relative terms, rather like 'this mountain' and 'that mountain ... 'This' and 'that' therefore depend upon our point of reference. This is also true of self and other. By climbing down the mountain of self, it is possible to ascend the mountain of other, and thereby cherish others as much as we presently cherish ourself."
