Love Everyone or Die

We may speak of or feel that we know about death but until we truly contemplate, approach and move into death, what do we know? This is a tale about looking into the eye of a tortoise shell butterfly while it lay dying on the shrine (click to see video!).  When its frail antennae reached up towards us at the sound of our voices, we felt at one even with this tiniest of creatures – who also wanted only to be loved. A talk given for the Toronto Theravada Buddhist Community on Zoom, December 2020.
