Buddhist nun, Ani Choying Drolma…singing “Smile, Muskaan.”

I don’t know what the actual words are… they’re in another language…but the soothing melody…. and the gentle and tender kindness in her eyes, smile, intonations, postures, actions and interactions “speak” so clearly…of gentleness, caring, kindness, generosity, acceptance… all presented with  a small, gentle and loving smile on her face… lovely.

I saw this wonderful video on the blog, This Time, This Space, where there are further descriptions about Ani Choying and the Ani Foundation.
