A friend shared this photo with me on Facebook this week. It’s the community garden at the Eden Project, St Blazey, Cornwall, England. The photo is by franieK. That’s all the info that was provided. But the post was paired with this lovely quote, which I will now share with you.
Out of the soil of friendliness (metta)
Grows the beautiful bloom of compassion (karuna)
Watered with tears of joy (mudita)
Under the cool shade of the tree of equanimity (upekkha).
—Longchen Rabjampa, a 14th-century Buddhist monk
