Splendor of Virtues: Kindness
Click here to share
I learn kindness from nature—big trees giving shelter, grass beneath our feet giving softness, flowers giving beauty.

Dombivli, India

In the midst of a health challenge recently, I had to rely on the kindness of people I hadn’t known before. I didn’t consider the situation life-threatening or even that serious, yet I found myself being moved to tears by simple, kind acts of warmth and caring. 

This showed me the enormous power of the virtue of kindness, one I am now much more sensitive to and grateful for. 

Thank you, Gurumayi, for bringing this shining virtue to light for me and all of us.

Kindness is a virtue that I treasure deeply. When I experience times of challenge, acts of kindness stand out for me like shining jewels. The kindness that others have shown to me has opened my heart to a greater sense of trust in life. It has nourished me in such a way that I am more able to offer and express this innate quality of my own heart.

The greatest kindness I have ever known is the gift of Shri Guru’s grace.

I think of kindness as the oil that lubricates the engine of my life. In any situation, even a drop of kindness serves to reduce friction, silence the squeaks of complaint, and make things run quite well.
I love to be present when kindness manifests. It is so uplifting to see others being kind. And I am grateful that, as I walk the Siddha Yoga path, I see this virtue gently making its way from my heart to my day-to-day interactions with others.
Over time, I’ve discovered how profound this virtue is. Kindness springs from my depths, like a fountain of strength that flows naturally from my sadhana. As I become more and more aware of who I really am—one with the Guru, one with God, one with the Supreme Self—I find I have extra kindness to share.
