Thanksgiving is a special time for remembering the kindness of others and what we have to be thankful for in our life. Appreciating the kindness of others leads to love and respect for them and greater harmony in our world.
“All living beings deserve to be cherished because of the tremendous kindness they have shown us. We came into this world naked and empty-handed and were immediately given a home, food, clothes, and everything else we needed. Even simple pleasures such as going for a walk or watching a beautiful sunset can be seen to be a result of the kindness of innumerable living beings. “ – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Eight Steps To Happiness
