Many people will say that kindness is a manner which demonstrates itself in proceedings. But what is kindness? It is the quality of being generous, friendly and considerate, to name just a few.

Talk given by Osho to a group of his students in December 1987
(The talk begins with one of the students asking Osho a question)
