Today, I want to talk to you about the beauty of love. But before we do that, I have to make a brief announcement, because in my life, there is the most beautiful love and that person is one person, very special. She is my everything, my all. That is my beautiful wife. It was her birthday yesterday. We had a wonderful surprise party yesterday; very cute. They tried to hide in one of the rooms but it was totally obvious that they were hiding. But it was very beautiful so we were very grateful.
Let us start with the world scriptures. Let us start from Confucianism today. This is from Chu Hsi:
Benevolence (仁) is simple undifferentiated gentleness. Its energy is the springtime of the universe and its principle is the mind of living things in the universe. Aju!
This is from the Qur’an, the 39 Sura:
Those who act kindly in this world will have kindness. Aju!
