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

1: The Body just as an impermanent formation...
2: The Feeling just as a transient sensation...
