You are a Buddhist and one of the greatest tenets of this path is that you will not cause harm. But it’s not as easy as that, is it? You realise this after taking the Bodhisattva vow, when a mosquito lands upon your arm. It takes a moment to swat it flat, a spot of blood squished and drying on your white skin. In the next moment you realise you have just taken a life.
Great piece Kait!! Thank you!
