“Almost without exception, the mother’s first act is to offer her baby nourishing milk,
an act which to me symbolizes unconditional love.
Her affection here is totally genuine and uncalculating;
she expects nothing in return.
As for the baby, it is drawn naturally to its mother’s breast…..
a relationship based on love and mutual tenderness,
which is totally spontaneous” (Dalai Lama, 1999, pg. 67).
