be good to yourself and be good to others

Here is an older photo of His Holiness with his cat.

Today is the 11th day of the lunar calendar fourth month of Saga Dawa when the Buddha became enlightened in Bodh Gaya, northern India 2600 years ago.
In four days on June 2 will be the actual enlightenment day. Our actions are multiplied greatly during this special time due to the power of Buddha’s enlightenment.

Make effort at reducing negative thoughts, words, and actions -- be good to yourself and be good to others. I am in retreat and trying to do the same.
Look inward again and again. When negative stuff is brewing, recognize it and let it go. Show it the back door. Better yet, dissolve it in the spacious emptiness of reality.
