Japan Disaster Spiritual Relief,lending hearts in OKC and online

1. Buddha Mind Monastery http://ctbuddhamind.org/, buddhamind@mail.ctcm.org.tw
The Sutras said: “All the world is impermanent. The earth is fragile and perilous." We are very sorry that a devastating tsunami swamped Japan after one of the largest earthquakes on record, killing more than a thousand people while many more are still missing.
As we know, the core value of Buddhism is compassion and equanimity. To practice the bodhisattva way means that we act with a compassionate mind in every situation to benefit all sentient beings. We will chant the Sutra of Impermanence, followed by a memorial service to dedicate merits to all the people who have suffered from this tsunami disaster

6. Inspirational quote
When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.
