Ubuntu of African origins translates to "humanity or compassion" is the inspiration of this creation. As we are all influenced by the tribes that surround us, those influences can produce fear of others of a different tribe.
Ubuntu points us to living a life of compassion and of embracing the unknown. For if each person was to open their heart and release the fear, the "Tribal Dream" of living in harmony would be realized.
Are you ready to live with "Ubuntu"?
Ubuntu is intended as a talisman to compassion, to be the constant reminder that the energy invested in the caring of others, is to embrace the love that is life. Ring
