During the pandemic, more than ever, we see the value of developing calm, compassion and wisdom in our daily lives. Everyone hopes to be safe – but no one can give us safety; nor can they endow us with the above qualities of mind. We have to realize peace through our own inner work. May we use this extraordinary time to strengthen ourselves spiritually, commit to social responsibility, and respond to life with more purity, awareness, selflessness and equipoise.  May we be catalysts for the good, caring for ourselves and others, disarming what is harmful, and sowing the seeds of great compassion and forgiveness.
