Thank you for this, Sujatin la. It is so true, isn't it. There is a very jolly man who has a grocery store across the street from where I live. He is smiling and present and remembers everyone. A couple of sensitive souls from the neighbourhood, who find it difficult to make eye contact or converse with others, spend their days in the shop averting their gaze or fleeing when shoppers come in but finding comfort, purpose and place each day in this surprising place. The grocer was born to a Catholic family but is very interested in a broad Christian Humanist approach and worships in such a community. I think it very likely he is a Bodhisattva. Thank you, again, for this wise teaching.
