MamaBlogger365 - On the Deep Kindness of Parent by Blaze Rose

Buddhism: A Brief Introduction

Based on the Compassionate Teachings of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

The most basic human virtue is reverence for one's father and mother. The Buddha regarded filial piety as absolutely essential to a moral life.

"There are two persons who you can never repay. They are your mother and father. Even if you were to carry your mother on one shoulder and your father on the other for one hundred years, and they should even void their excrement there; and if you should attend to them, anointing them with salves, massaging, bathing and rubbing their limbs, even that would not repay them."
