Scan 4In 2008 I met my 94 year old Aunt Elinor for the first time.  She had been lost to the family since 1936 when she was sent to the mental hospital as a 23 year old mother of two small children.  Elinor was feisty, affectionate, and she still played the piano when I found her in a nursing home.  I saw her as a kind of bodhisattva in the way she related to everyone around her as family and lived without so many of the things I deem necessary.  The article in the Mindfulness Bell introduces her as Sadaparibhuta, the bodhisattva who never disparages.
