A Tip for Raising Children

I wonder, is there something to give certain attention to when raising a child?

Dear Martin,

Love, love, love, and still more love.

Please understand that this does not mean all hugs and kisses. Far from it. At times, discipline is necessary, too, but give it with love. Don’t give in to blind anger. Doing so does no one any good and would be a spiritual error.

Raising a child is a great responsibility. Both parent and child should reap many beneficial lessons from the experience. Yet both must also heed the quiet voice of the MAHANTA in order to realize them.
