My mom Ruth Margareta Irene, born Kallio, was a very strong lady. And she loved me as I love her. In Buddhism one always compares true compassion with the love a moms feels for her child. Yepp. That is it. Homage to my mom, who passed away on the 12th of March 1999, the very year I went the first time ever to Karme Tenpe Gyaltsen.
