Mother’s milk is, I think, a symbol of compassion. Without mother’s milk we cannot survive, So our first act as a baby together with our mother Is sucking milk from our mother, with a feeling of great closeness. At that time, we may not know how to express what love is, what compassion is, but there is a strong feeling of closeness. From the mother’s side also, if there is no strong feeling of closeness toward the baby, her milk may not flow readily. So, mother’s milk is, I think, a symbol of compassion and human affection.
