The reason for giving in our lives, to others and to self

Krisha Gautami went often to Buddha. The thoughts that he gave her to think about were the best kind of medicine for her loneliness. Now that she knew how much it hurt to be lonely, she began to learn how to comfort others who also were sad. She went often to the homes of the poor. She brought them food and played with their children. In these ways she slowly learned how to comfort herself. – Adapted from “The Mustard-Seed Medicine”, From Long Ago and Many Lands by Sophia Lyon Fahs
