A Millionaire in Happiness

Before a person loves animals deeply, during that time his soul has not been touched by a deep kind of love.

That is the opening message on the youtube site Green Renaissance which tells the story of a millionaire in the field of happiness.

Interestingly, this rich man is also bald like Guruji. Have lots of pets. Their pets exude a deep sense of happiness and gratitude.

Guruji was very touched watching this film last night. Mainly because Guruji has been doing it for years. Wild birds are fed every day in the Ashram.

Those who eat rice are provided with rice, those who like fruit are provided with fruits every day. The dove is even more spoiled. As soon as Guruji came down, the two of them came closer and of course they were given food to eat.

The fishes, which are all pink in color, the symbol of love, are also fed every single day. Just last night, Guruji finally understood the explanation more deeply.

Animals and trees are not here to be hurt, but they are here to be loved. Surprisingly, the more they were cherished, the richer the soul felt inside.

That’s why, the closest Compassion’s family such as Mr. Sudharmin, Merike, Anton, Mrs. Rina, Om Tian, ​​Mr. Adi Wiryawan, Dr. Nyoman Ariana, dr. Eka Imbawan, Kadek Optimist, Gung Tut, Wayan Mina, Jero Weda, Jero Songan etc. have been guided by this message for a long time.

“It is enough to learn from what is said. Start learning from what is not spoken”, a series of ways of learning that are much deeper.

In this cycle of time, there are many people who can speak beautiful words. But the Master who shares the Light with a beautiful example, that is very rare.

In preparation to serve again at the Vihara starting July 2022, to all close friends, depositing this message as well as possible and as deeply as possible.

“Guruji’s words are number two. But our attitude towards other people who want to come and be served is number one”. To borrow an old message: “Attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG difference”.

In the rice fields there are even a pair of Buddha statues praying so that the birds that eat at the Ashram will later be born as humans, in affluent families, interested in learning Dharma and meeting a true Guru.
