Tolerant like a tree

1 Posted by - July 1, 2013 - Radhanath Swami


A tree will stand in the scorching sun to give shade to others. A tree will bear the freezing cold of the winter and give wood to create heat for all. A tree will silently give up even its life for someone to build a comfortable house with. That is tolerance.

Who is a great personality? One who is more tolerant than a tree. This may seem impossible, but it is actually our nature. Where there is love, spiritual love, there is unlimited tolerance and humility.
