|Compassion is the core of Buddhist practice. Developed through mind training, it is generated through projecting all sentient beings as having been one’s mother, in one existence or another. This analogy is powerful and universal, the bond between mother and child being the strongest there is, not only with humans, capable of thought, but also among animals. With Mother’s day approaching, Norlha celebrates the bond at the core of our being, the one that exemplifies the strongest love there is; one to appreciate, cherish or remember. We present you with a gallery of portraits of mothers with their children, from the human and animal realms.
