One who milks

June 5, 2011

I am taking samskrt lessons here in India from a beautiful teacher named Anantha. Two days ago in an explanation of the word dohana he explained this:

If we take something, it should not harm either side (nor the one who gives, nor the one who recieves).

Like a bee to a flower: it doesn’t damage the flower and it takes only a little, not the whole, and then goes on to other flowers.

Whatever we take from nature should be in this way.
