When you are looking at the beautiful flowers, do you ever wonder
1. Where is the flower from?
2. How many types of flowers?
3. When is the flower going to blossom?
and many more…….
Beautiful flowers can also consider as “WONDER/ MIRACLE” in the world.
Beautiful flowers can cheer up our life, it’s bring up our inner joy and happiness.
Do you have this experience?
Basically, when you look at flowers, they are actually sharing dharma with us.
1. Impermanence of life.
Showing us the good example of Birth, aged, sick and death.
The flower might look an excellent condition in the morning but might just withered at night.
Everything is changing, nothing is permanent.
How can we hold on to anything of this moment?
We must get ready, start the path of spiritual as young as possible.
No time for us to wait as we can’t predict when are we going to say good-bye…
Please note that Coffin not necessary meant for elderly people.
2. Fragrance of flowers
To spread dharma to others like the fragrance of flowers.
Show a good example, diligently on Dharma learning, impress/ convince the people surrounding to follow Buddhist teaching.
Changes must start from our own self and not to demand changes in others.
We’ve benefited ourselves from Dharma , we would like all sentient being also benefit from dharma.
It’s our responsibility to spread the fragrance of Dharma.
3. Unshaken mind
Whether we are compliment or complain to the flower, it’s still blossom & spread the fragrance of flowers.
As a human, it’s really excellent if we can maintain our “Unshaken mind” when we receive compliment or complain from others.
Why should we be ANGRY when people complain us?
Why we need to poison ourselves daily when you are in Anger?
Why are we penalized ourself for other’s error?
Nature is sharing Dharma with us. You’ll notice it when you are at NOW.
