Devotion and respect

Devotion and respect should be offered to those who have shown us the Way. (Dhammapada v 392)

The last day of March – already. On the Christian calendar, this is Wednesday of Holy Week. My Buddhist calendar quotes from the Dhammapada, commending devotion and respect. And my atheist friend, winking, says: “This is Atheist Week, after all.”

Today, I found a cache of Harry Palmer quotes – one of which says: “The beliefs you truly hold, the ones you’ve decided to believe, your faith, will cause you to create or attract the experiences which will verify them. When you change your beliefs, your experiences will change.”
