A child doesn’t know about hatred…

I was recently listening to an interview of His Holiness Shri. Dnyanraj Manik Prabhu, present Peethathipati of Shri. Manik Prabhu Samsthan which he has in conversation with a television channel in Sri Lanka.

One example has touched me a lot where he spoke about how hatred is being spread. He has an example of a child. Yes, child doesn’t know hatred. Child loves everyone and everything. It’s we who teach them hatred. That’s absolutely true.

It’s often we see that children are told about some one is not good, some place is not good or something doesn’t taste well. We should only alarm children when they are in danger such as walking towards fire etc., If something doesn’t taste good to me does not mean its taste is bad. If I don’t like someone in the community, that doesn’t mean he or she is bad.

We should only spread love and not hatred.
