    February 17 - Random Acts of Kindness Day

    Today (February 17) is known as National Random Act of Kindness Day in the United States (and maybe elsewhere). I was tickled to see that today on Twitter, one of the trending hashtags is #RandomActsofKindnessDay:

    A nice list of ideas for how you can celebrate this lovely little holiday:

    As a novice priest-in-training, this is simply an expression of my opinion. Please take it with a grain of salt.

    Thank you for letting us know, Sekishi. I will be on the lookout for opportunities to practice this.

    True dat. And yet, we can see that every day is the Buddha's enlightenment, but we still pick a day and celebrate.

    Mayu, Zen master Baoche, was fanning himself. A monk approached and said, “Master, the nature of wind is permanent and there is no place it does not reach. Why, then, do you fan yourself?”
    “Although you understand that the nature of the wind is permanent,” Mayu replied, “you do not understand the meaning of its reaching everywhere.”
    “What is the meaning of its reaching everywhere?” asked the monk again. Mayu just kept fanning himself. The monk bowed deeply.

    Nice! I'll do something kind before the day is out.
    Thanks for sharing!

    BTW, combination Gassho/High Five for appropriate koan use.
