“Buddhism teaches that ‘The voice carries out the work of the Buddha’ (OTT, 4).

“Words from the heart reach others’ hearts. Even a few encouraging words can give another the strength to go on living.

“Let’s address others with warm and caring voices, and create a society of mutual encouragement.”
