“When a person long absent from home returns safely from afar, relatives, friends and well-wishers rejoice at his return. In the same way, when one who has done good is gone from this world to the beyond, his good deeds receive him, like relatives receiving a returning loved one.”
This is from the Dhammapada, the sayings of Buddha.
Though it is not actually about travel, the opening lines reminded me (for obvious reasons) about traveling and since I am away this weekend, I thought it was appropriate. I’m off to L.A. for Labor Day Weekend (no real connection other than having Monday off really). Do you have any good plans for Labor Day Weekend?
