According to Buddha

Along with the peach and the citrus, pomegranates are one of the “Three Blessed Fruits” of Buddhist tradition. The story goes that there was a powerful female demon (known as Hariti in India and Kishimo-jin or Karitei-mo in Japan) who kidnapped young children and feasted on them. The Buddha, however, managed to placate her ferocious desire by offering her pomegranates. Soothed by the Buddha’s compassion, she acquired a gentler nature and became the patron goddess of children. She is sometimes depicted holding a pomegranate in one hand a suckling a baby with the other.

How do we know who we are? We might be one breath away from enlightenment or death or who knows? The uncertainty is great. It keeps it wide open.

they know from the past
life simply doesn’t last
so they live for today
for tomorrow they may
not be able to walk in the skies

sun slips into horizon
moon reaches for the stars

According to Buddha

Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It’s not ‘I love you’ for this or that reason, not ‘I love you if you love me.’ It’s love for no reason, love without an object.

think of your fellow (hu)man
lend him/her a helping hand
put a little love in your heart

oh, please don’t hesitate
put a little love in your heart

and the world will be a better place
and the world will be a better place
for you and me
you just wait and see
