Hillshire farm: What's the fuss?

by John Brown, Wilmington, De

I have been following the Hillshire farm story and I don't know what all the fuss is about. Initially, I got upset but then realized that this only causd suffering in my life. Where do we go with the practice of detachment as shown by the Lord Buddha?

By focusing on these petty issue we become no better than any of the worlds religions that are currently killing each over small differences of opinion.

Just showing love and compassion and not getting into debates or getting angry with people who don't hold our views lets the Three Jewels truly shine in the darkness.
