Reaching out!

A Buddhist monk was on the beach with his apprentice the day after a fierce storm. Thousands of starfish had been washed up and stranded on the shore. Stooping down, the monk carefully lifted a single creature and returned it to the sea. His young apprentice wondered aloud why his master bothered to do this when it made little difference to the mass of helpless creatures. As they walked along, the monk picked up another single starfish and replied, “It makes a difference to this one.”

At Mitr, we too believe that we may not be able to reach out to the masses. However, if we manage to bring a smile onto the face of even one child, we have made a difference!
