Friends:

How to show Kindness to those Worthy of it?


The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, those who you think is worth listening to and for whom you

feel empathy  - whether friends, family, colleagues, or just associates -

all these you should explain, establish and settle in developing these
Four Foundations of Awareness. What four? When a Bhikkhu keenly
contemplates:
 

1: The Body just as an impermanent formation...
2: The Feeling just as a transient sensation...
3: The Mind just as a passing set of changing moods...
4: The Phenomenon just as a momentary mental state..
 

while always acutely aware and clearly comprehending, he thereby removes
any greed, envy, jealousy, frustration and discontent rooted in this world...

sympathy  - whether friends, family, colleagues, or just associates -

all these you should explain, establish and settle in developing these

Four Foundations of Awareness...
