Parable of the Mustard Seed
I have been thinking a great deal about the Indian parable about the Mustard Seed. Our family is facing the end of life and I am trying to remember the comforting thoughts I needed when I was a kid. I lost two grandparents when I was around 10-11 and lost another just before I was married at age 23. I never knew my maternal grandmother as he left the family when my mother was young.
Found this neat page from Plochman's Mustard that includes the religious associations of the mustard seed. The search links are wrong - try this: http://www.google.com/search?q=mustard+buddha. This is a nice version of the story.
