All Beings Are My Mother : Buddhism 101 – Ep. 28
In this podcast Robert A.F. Thurman discussed the Buddhist perspective on the health and happiness of all beings.
One of the unique aspects of Tibetan culture is that for hundreds of years, thousands of people have been meditating on the thought “every single being has been my mother.” This means that through countless lives, you have been every possible animal and being, and every single being alive today has been your mother countless times. Even the worst killers shared their body and milk and took care of you. Professor Thurman explains how this thought helps you feel your own infinity as a being, and also creates an altruistic society.
This episode is the second of a two-part recording of a lecture given at Tibet House California on June 4, 2015, titled “Tibet’s Gift to the World.”
