Lions Roar : January 2016
OUR TRUE HERITAGE The cosmos is filled with precious gems. I want to offer a handful of them to you this morning. Each moment you are alive is a gem, shining through and containing earth and sky, water and clouds. It needs you to breathe gently for the miracles to be displayed. Suddenly you hear the birds singing, the pines chanting, see the flowers blooming, the blue sky, the white clouds, the smile and the marvelous look of your beloved. You, the richest person on Earth, who have been going around begging for a living, stop being the destitute child. Come back and claim your heritage. We should enjoy our happiness and offer it to everyone. Cherish this very moment. Let go of the stream of distress and embrace life fully in your arms. These are the words of a song written during the Winter 1990 retreat at Plum Village, inspired by the parable of the destitute son in the Lotus Sutra and also the idea of generosity in the Diamond Sutra. —Thich Nhat Hanh PHOTO©NARONGSANGNAK/EPA/CORBIS
