Moral Politics essay by Bhikkhu Bodhi

A Moral Politics: Nourishing Change, by Bhikkhu Bodhi, writing in Tricycle. The article is mostly about the US House Republicans eliminating food stamps from their recently passed version of the Farm Bill in the introduction and middle but concludes with a kind of call to arms for moral reflection and contemplation applied to our obligation to help vulnerable citizens.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
