Awaken Issue 47
2020 has so far shrouded the world in unprecedented changes. The coronavirus outbreak which became a worldwide pandemic, not only brought out the worst but also the best in humanity (page 57). The pandemic reminds us once again we should cherish and appreciate, and not take what we have—peace, family and good health—for granted (page 60). We should always bear in mind the teaching on impermanence emphasised by the Buddha.
“Remember always that you are just a visitor here, a traveller passing through. Your stay is but short and the moment of your departure unknown (page 40).”
