    Peace to all who have lost children, and to the children lost. There is perhaps no harder Dukkha.

This guy is such a genuinely warm and kind human being but I can't imagine the kind of suffering he and his family are going through now.

    Ross not something I can comprehend but remember our Buddhism seeks to impart Loving Kindness. All that we will be metta means loving kindness in every way. So what we think of as soul is really or confused continue with contact as we can. Explicitly explained to your friend an entire Buddhist Sangha and if we can not be called this, call us a group of loving people thinking and feelings that health is the cause and we would change it if we could. Jumbo this is very positive please allow me.

    May I ask for metta for my dear sweet cat of 14 years, who, having seen the world, returned home this morning after a long illness to place he never left? Perhaps also for all of us who must suffer the loss of those they hold most dear?

    I have just read the news today that at least 23 African migrants were killed in an attempt to enter Spain. Unfortunately, I also have read so many comments from my compatriots who approve of it. Metta to those migrants and their families. And metta to my compatriots, whose compassion is weakened because of the irregular immigration problems in our country. Namu Kanzeon Bosatsu.

    That is so sad. Metta to all migrants. May they be free from suffering. May they feel safe and still. Metta to those who have lost human concern for other humans. May they be free from enmity. May they be loving, grateful and kind.

    Sorry for running over three sentences.

    Metta to all migrants everywhere, those so desperate that they would risk their lives to find a home.

    May their birth home be so peaceful and calm, nurturing and healthy that they would not feel need to run.

    Hello Sangha,

    A family member was diagnosed with cancer fairly suddenly not long ago. It was caught late and they tried surgery to remove what they could, but it is back.
    My partner is taking this especially hard. She lost her father to cancer a few years ago, and she is very close to this family member as well.

    Metta for all who are sick, and all who love them.
    Feels like I ask this one a lot.

    Gassho,
    Nengyoku
