      Another Response to "Picking Up Other People's Baggage"

      Hello. Good day.

      If there is any book out there worth reading, at this moment, I would recommend "Liao Fan's Four Lessons: http://www.buddhanet.net/liaofans.htm ". The broad principles governing one's actions and behaviour, so say, are broadly laid out in this very precious text. Ironically, so precious, yet remained largely unknown. And even more ironical, it is free of charge (available at most large Buddhist temples). The "definition" of kindness is well-explained in this book. Please, read it.

      If one has chosen the Bodhisattva path, then, bear no complaints. Bear no thoughts of "anything". What does it mean?

      No thought about the recipient (referring to the less fortunate in this instance).
      No thought of the act of helping.
      No thought of the karmic effects.

      On an even more abstract level, can acts of kindness be ONESELF and ONESELF be all acts of kindness??

      Have a nice day ahead... Amitabha... ...JMeng
