I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation. 

I then settled down to think about how kind all my mothers have been to me. When they were my mother they cared for me and protected me. Each one of them would have put themselves in danger for me, and taken my place if they could when I was ill or in pain. They thought constantly about my welfare and although I forgot about them, they never forgot me. 

Even now they help me by providing food and shelter in this world as well as many comforts and conveniences. 


I mulled over all the kindness I have received and I felt very grateful and humble. I felt a genuine affection for all my kind mothers, which I focused on for the rest of the meditation. 

May we all remember the kindness of others and never forget them.
