Sometimes we may hear about things happening in the world that seem a little scary. Usually we try not to think about these things, don’t we. But sometimes we keep hearing about them again and again so it’s hard to ignore. It’s important to talk to someone we trust and ask questions and tell them how we are feeling. If we can talk to someone who knows the Buddha’s Dhamma, we get the chance to use the Buddha’s teachings to calm our mind and do things to help our situation.
Today, one of the monks is going share some suttas taught by the Buddha that reminds us of all the good things we can do, even in a dangerous situation.
