Searching all directions with your awareness, you find no one dearer than yourself...

Why did we create this blog

This blog was created in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting in Newtown, USA, where 20 first-graders ages ranging from 6-7 were massacred by an angry 2o year old gunman. This took place on the 14th of December, 2012. We believe if he was taught how to love himself, how to be kind to himself, how to be compassionate to himself and how to appreciate himself, from an earlier age (pre-school) none of these things would have happened. It was a very sad occasion to all of us and it is time now to change its course. We have to acknowledge this happened, forgive the person who did it and learn from this tragedy. -Devni W.

Children are like soft clay...

Children are like soft clay when you are doing pottery. You can mold the pot into any shape or form you want when the the clay is soft and wet. You have to apply sustain pressure over time and you can shape the pot the way you want. Once the clay is hard or baked in an oven, it is almost impossible to change its shape. So it is important to teach children how to practice self loving-kindness, compassion and gratitude towards them from a very early age.
