United in Harmony :-)

he 6 Things Uniting in Harmony to be Remembered:

The Blessed Buddha once said:

These six things are to be remembered in order to Unite any Community in Harmony:
Which six?
1: Friendly Behaviour (metta-kaya-kamma=friendly bodily action) both in public & in private.
2: Friendly Speech (metta-vaci-kamma=friendly verbal action) both in public & in private.
3: Friendly Thought (metta-mano-kamma=friendly mental action) both in public & in private.
4: Sharing of Gains (sadharana-bhogi=common wealth) even down to any single lump of food.
5: Moral Harmony (sila-samannagato=uniform morality): All respect the same ethical rules.
6: Harmony in Views (ditthi-samannagato=uniform attitude): All share same general views.
These 6 things are to be considered and remembered both for individual & social Harmony...

Comments: So we can sleep with open doors and dance with the children in our arms :-)
