Non-Violence - No wasting

 

 

NO WASTING

 

 

It is to avoid spending or consuming without discrimination.

The wasting is a form of violence, which we would have saved could have been used for someone else.   
 

BUDDHA’S LESSON ON WASTING

 

 


A disciple of Buddha, said, “Oh Master! I have a request to make.”

Buddha: “What is it; tell me?”

Disciple: “My robe is worn out. It is no longer decent enough to wear. Please, may I have a new one?”

Buddha looked at the disciple’s attire and found that the garment was absolutely in tatters and really needed replacement. So he asked the store-keeper to give a new robe to this disciple. The disciple offered obeisance to the great master and left the room.
Buddha kept thinking about the incident and felt that He had perhaps missed an opportunity to teach a valuable lesson to the disciple. So he went to the disciple’s quarters to talk to him.

Buddha: Are you comfortable in your new robe? Do you need anything else?

Disciple: Thank you Master. I am very comfortable and do not need anything else.

Buddha: Now that you have a new one, what have you done with the old one?

Disciple: I have used it to replace my worn out bedspread.

Buddha: What did you do with the old bedspread?

Disciple: Master, I am using it as a curtain on my window.

Buddha: Did you discard your old window curtain?

Disciple: Master, I tore it into four pieces and am using them as napkins to handle the hot pots and pans in the kitchen.

Buddha: What about the old kitchen napkins?

Disciple: We are using them as mops to wash and wipe the floor.

Buddha: Where is the old mop?

Disciple: Lord, the old mop was so tattered that the best we could do was to take all the threads apart and make wicks for your oil lamp. One of them is presently lit in your room.”

Buddha was content. He was happy that His disciples realized that nothing is useless. We can find a use for everything, if only we want to! Nothing should be wasted; not even time!

If all of us were to practice the habit of thrift, we can preserve the non renewable resources for our children, our grandchildren and our great grand children as our forefathers so thoughtfully did for us. Let us vow together to leave at least one monument for our children: the Earth!

 

Si nous suivions ne serais-ce qu'en partie cette leçon, la terre commencerait à aller mieux. 


L’appel d'une jeune adolescente Le fait est assez rare pour ne pas le signaler. Cela s'est passé au sommet "Planète Terre" de l'ONU à Rio en 1992. Et c'est toujours d’actualité. Le thème de la rencontre était l'environnement. Devant une assemblée d'adultes, une adolescente de 14 ans lance un cri de vérité dont la pertinence devrait inciter tout un chacun à prêter une oreille attentive. Voix claire, discours bien construit, langage direct, la jeune fille interpelle les dirigeants du monde et fait sensation. Elle vient du Canada et s'exprime au nom de l'Organisation des Enfants en Défense de l'Environnement.
 

Ce serait bien de rappeler cette vidéo à nos dirigeants pour leur rafraîchir la mémoire.
Les jeunes attendent que les adultes leurs montrent l’exemple.

Thought for the day

ycoeur17.gif

The very first spiritual exercise one must adopt is the cultivation of inner silence, to put an end to the continuous dialogue with the mind. Let the mind rest for a while. Do not project on the mind irrelevant details or pollute it with fumes of envy and greed. Every idea we entertain, either good or bad, gets imprinted on the mind. An element of weakness and unsteadiness is thus introduced in the mind. Keep the mind calm and clear. Do not agitate it every moment by your non-stop dialogue.
