A Question To Reveal Our Self
This could be applied to any question or assertion used to reveal our actual state of mind, rather than the state of mind we like to portray to others. Until enlightenment, we will all have an attitude that assumes we manifest good qualities.
There is no one answer to this question; just look at your response, and the response to that response.
Q. It is said in Buddhism that, due to reincarnation,
every sentient being in the universe
has been our mother.
How does your mind respond to that?
The important reality lies in what is observing the mind’s reactions.
