Compassion is in you. Understanding is in you. Love is in you.
- Each of you is a seed, a wonderful seed like a seed of
lotus. You look a little bit bigger than a lotus seed,
but you are a wonderful seed. In you there are a lot
of talents. Compassion is in you. Understanding is in
you. Love is in you. The capacity to smile is in you,
the capacity to help other people be happy is in you.
Because these wonderful virtues, these wonderful
qualities, have been transmitted to you by your
ancestors, your blood ancestors and your spiritual
ancestors. If you know how to sprout and to grow, you
will be a very beautiful lotus pond and you will offer
a lot of happiness to many, many people around you,
not only people, but animals, plants and minerals. A
tiny lotus seed can make so many people happy. It has
made me happy.
