Each day we offer a different verse from The Thirty Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas, by
Ngulchu Thogme Zangpo, as a suggested practice. Here is today’s verse:
16. Even if a person for whom you have cared
Like your own child regards you as an enemy,
Cherish him specially, like a mother
Does her child who is stricken with sickness —
This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

Verses From The Dhammapada, The spoken words of the Buddha
33. As a fletcher makes straight his arrow, a wise man makes straight his trembling and unsteady thought, which is difficult to guard, difficult to hold back.
34. As a fish taken from his watery home and thrown on dry ground, our thought trembles all over in order to escape the dominion of Mara (the tempter).
