Shugen Roshi recounts the origins of the present form of Mother’s Day, which was all about a mother’s call for peace! During his lifetime, the Buddha made this same appeal in many sutras with instructions on living peacefully. What better way to honour our mothers than to recommit to this? Shugen Roshi guides us through the practical application of the Karaniya Metta Sutra: “This is what should be done by one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace…” Here’s a link to the complete Karaniya Metta Sutra.
