Lions Roar : March 2006
And to extend that to the greater society. Yes. It's like in a classroom at school. If the teacher knows how to organize the kids in her class into a family, they will suffer much less and they will have a lot of joy. It's the same in the town hall or in a business. Business leaders can organize their enterprise as a family where everyone can look at each other as a cell of the organism. We know that in our own body there are many kinds of cells: liver cells, lung cells, neurons. And every cell is doing her best. There's no envy about the position of the other cells, because there's no discrimination at all. It's by being the best kind of liver cell that you can nourish other cells. Every cell is doing her best in order to bring about the well-being of the whole body. There is no discrimination, no fight among the cells, and that is what we can learn from modern biology. We can organize our- selves in this way as a family, as a school, as a town hall, as a Congress. It is possible, because if our cells are able to do that, we humans can do that also. I hope you don't mind my asking this question, and you don't have to answer. But I have always been very touched by what you've written about a love that you had, someone you clearly loved very deeply, whom you left. How do you feel about that now? Is that, at this point in your life, a regret? That love has never been lost. It has continued to grow. The object of my love grows every day, every day, every day, until .

To love someone is a very wonder- ful opportunity for you to love everyone. If it is true love. In the insight of non-self, you see that the object of your love is always there and the love continues to grow. Nothing is lost and you don't regret anything, because if you have true love in you, then you and your true love are going in the same direc- tion, and each day you are able to embrace, more and more. So to love one person is a great opportunity for you to love many more. Yet monasticism-and you are very encouraging toward those who would like to become monks or nuns-renounces this love. Why is it a good thing to forego this opportunity to love? In the life of a monastic, you make the vow to develop your love and your understanding. You develop the capacity to embrace everyone into your love. So loving one person, as I said, is an opportunity for you to love many more people. Es- pecially when that person shares the same aspiration as you, there is no suffering at all. As a monastic you lead a life of monastic celibacy and community, and if the one you love re- alizes that, she will not suffer and you will not suffer, because love is much more than having a sexual relationship. Because of great love you can sacrifice that aspect of love, and your love becomes much greater. That nourishes you, that nour- ishes the other person, and finally your love will have no limit. That is the Buddha's love. . joy is freedom practice is freedom The Yogi's Joy: Songs of Mi larepa by Sangharakshita Explore fear, honesty, self-respect, the student-teacher relationship, and how we can make teachings our own through this guru's stories and songs. 256pp, paper, ISBN 1 899579 66 4 $14.95/(10.99/(14.95 Detox Your Heart by Valerie Mason-John Liberate your heart of the toxins of anger , fear, and hatred - creatively and positively. 208pp, paper, ISBN 1 899579 65 6 $13.95/(9.99/(13.95 windhorse publications to order USA: contact Consortium 800 283 3572 UK/EU: +44 (0)141 6304169 www.windhorsepublications.com SHAMBHALA SUN MARCH 2006 103
