The Dalai Lama has said it, “My religion is kindness.”
A kind look, a kind gesture, a kind word…these can change a person’s whole life at the right moment.
Yogi Bhajan, who brought Kundalini Yoga to the West, had this to say on the subject of kindness:
“There is only one power, my dear folks. I will teach you one thing today: Learn nothing. Practice nothing. Know nothing. Just be kind. The power of kindness is the most supreme of all. Learn to be kind. Live being kind and practice being kind. It is the true power.”
