Living fully now -



I first read these words over thirty years ago in the book Lady of the Lotus by William Barrett.  It is from the Vedas.

It is a good guide on how to live for the future generations as well are our own.


I have a son.
I owe a debt to my son,
To the children of my son
And to their children.
Each gift that I give,
I give many times;
To my son,
To the children of my son
And to their children.
I must take care
That I give no evil
For the evil will be multiplied.
The seeds of my example
Shall grow into trees in their lives.
I would give a fair forest
To my son
To the children of my son
And to their children.
I pray that this may be.
