Gratefulness for Kindness Shown to me in Thailand and Laos

guest house

In this video, originally an insurance ad called “Unsung Hero”, it shows acts of kindness set in what looks like it might be Bangkok, Thailand. It brought back memories of kindnesses I too experienced. Thank you for smiles, for flower offerings at the ferry bus stop on the river, for prayers, for hospital visits, (from the staff of Sri-Ayuttaya Guest House), for cool rooms and billowing mosquito nets in Laos, for all the small acts that soothed me, that helped me.

Here is a link to Sri-Ayuttaya from TripAdvisor. I would rate them highly and will never forget their kindness. Where: Sri-Ayudthaya Soi 14, Behind National Library Dusit,10300, Bangkok Thailand.

I read this post today on the New Lion’s Roar website, providing Buddhist Wisdom for Our Times. I wanted to share the link because I feel it will be helpful for those who are having a difficult time. An ancient set of Buddhist slogans offers us six powerful techniques to transform life’s difficulties into awakening and benefit. Zen teacher Norman Fischer guides us through them.
