This comparison of all beings is found in Theravada scriptures, in Lankavatara sutra and in Abhisamayalankara of Maitreya, but it includes:" Fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, relatives, friends and kin." Is there some unconscious factor in the tibetan psyche that is responsible for this unfortunate omission ??
That metaphor; helpful to see all as very precious, like obviously for many a mom is, that reduces the coarse thinking and makes the wall of duality less solid till a fortunate one then see the illusion of the wall when warm heart is in wisdom. Then spontanity needs no description.
P.S Don't breath my air.
