Just a Little Act of Kindness on this World Kindness Day

November 13, 2011  by: Paulose  Points: 25   Category: Social    Views: 525

November 13 is observed as World Kindness day. Kindness is the best form of Dharma. It is the positive power of humanity that promotes life forward through acts of kindness. On this World Kindness Day do at least a single act of kindness and sow the seed of love.


November 13 is observed as World Kindness Day. It was the opening day of the World Kindness Movement, first held at Tokyo, Japan in 1998 and the signatories who gathered there published the "Declaration of Kindness". This day has a very noble purpose "to look beyond ourselves, beyond the boundaries of our country, beyond our culture, our race, our religion; and realise that we are citizens of the world".

The value of kindness is actually dying out in the modern consumerist world where everything is decided on the commercial balance of profit. Everyone thinks of "What will I get out of this?" and not what one can do to others.

Kindness is the soul of a healthy society

Kindness is the soul of health. It is the outward sign of a healthy society. The Italian psychotherapist Ferrucci writes in his book "What Our Children Teach Us" that kindness is synonymous with mental health. If an individual is not kind, it shows that he is not healthy. So also if a society is not kind it cannot be a healthy society and progress forward. It will automatically bring destruction to the whole society. Kindness, in fact, benefits both the giver and the receiver. Kindness is manifested through the qualities of honesty, forgiveness, trust and humility.

Kindness for world peace

Peace starts with the individual. It starts first within each one of us; then at home, in the family. It is promoted by every act of kindness. The whole world is affected by the kindness and unkindness of individuals. Just take the examples of Gandhi and Hitler.

If we want to maintain peace in the world we must foster up similarities and not fight for the causes of differences. We must focus our attention on what we have in common with a mind to achieve the goal of peaceful coexistence. Difference is just to enjoy and not to curse and fight. Difference in anything, including cultures and beliefs, is the beauty of creation.

Unkindness hurts and destroys

Just imagine how you feel when someone acts unkindly with you, or hurt your feelings, or offend you in some way. The same thing happens when you do it to others. Unkindness always hurts and destroys. Rather kindness can be even more powerful than your unkind deeds or words. Remember the Biblical words, "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head." (Romans 12:20)

Be kind at least to day

Be kind today, on the World Kindness Day, to you and to others. Kindness to yourself will free from all addictions, including workaholism. It will free you from many illnesses of body and mind. Kindness to creations will pour a ray of happiness into you. Kindness to others will make your earthly life a paradise. Try to look at the similarities rather than looking at the differences.

But it is sad that people are forgetting the act of kindness and kindness itself.
