What I Learnt Last Night from Bhante Dhammaratna

We always hear from others that we should look at the goodness in others. But last night, at the meditation class at the Buddhist Library, hearing Bhante extoll the positive aspect of a certain group, I can’t help but appreciate deeply that despite what we think, there may be something positive in others. If only we look.

“Try to see the goodness in others”.
