A Verse to Make Parents Happy by Lama Zopa Rinpoche


As a parent, you can make yourself happy

by thinking:

How wonderful that my life can be beneficial

for even one sentient being.

How wonderful that I can take care of even

one sentient being.

How wonderful that my limbs can be useful

for looking after and bringing happiness to

even one sentient being.

Especially when you encounter difficulties—

when your children do not listen to you, when

you cannot control them and when you feel

disappointed with them—it is good to rejoice

in these ways. If you can do this, there will be

no difficulties in your heart.

Joyful Parents, Successful Children
Lama Zopa Rinpoche
