Dear Thay, Dear Sangha,

Yesterday our Sangha recited the 14 Mindfulness Trainings and I was struck by the number of times I noticed the words “compassion” and “understanding”. Just for the fun of it, I put the text of the 14 Mindfulness Trainings into a “word cloud” tool called Wordle ( which presents a visualization of the words in a text according to their frequency.  I thought that you might be interested in the results.
