Seeing the good in others

Teaching:
We often see the good in others when things are going well, for example when we are happy playing with our friends or siblings. However, when they are not acting in the way that we want, it is easy instead to get angry.

Buddha taught that in those hard times it is even more important to see the good in others. We can do this by remembering their kindness towards us in many previous times. We can also recognize that they are just suffering from delusions, and so the correct response would be to try to help them! We would not get angry at someone when they get physically sick, so why would we when they suffer from the mental disease?

Craft:
To remind us to see the best in one another, we made heart shape eyeglasses.
