Harmlessness & Tolerance Protects all Beings!
The Blessed Buddha was a great friend of tolerance & harmlessness:
I am a friend of the footless,
I am a friend of the bipeds;
I am a friend of those with four feet,
I am a friend of the many-footed.
May not the footless harm me,
may not the bipeds harm me,
may not those with four feet harm me,
and may not those with many feet harm me.
A. II, 72
Among tigers, lions, leopards & bears I lived in the wood.
No one was frightened of me, nor did I fear anyone.
Uplifted by such universal friendliness I enjoyed the forest.
Finding great solace in sweet silent solitude.
Suvanna-sama Jataka 540
I am a friend and helper to all,
I am sympathetic to all living beings.
I develop a mind full of love and
delights always in harmlessness.
I gladden my mind, fill it with joy,
makes it immovable and unshakable.
I develop the divine states of mind
not cultivated by simple men.
Thus he who both day and night
He who does not strike nor makes
As a mother even with her life protects
When one with a mind of true affection
The one who has left violence,
The one who is friendly among the hostile,
He is not Noble who injures living beings.
Tolerance is the highest training.
Let no one deceive another
Solitude is happiness for one who is content,
How to become harmless:
