Compassion NOW!

Compassion NOW!

EPUB KINDLE

Compassion NOW! exhorts us to translate compassionate feeling into positive action in the world. From a teaching given in India in 2010, the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa asserts that having compassion for oneself is a necessary starting point. From there we can expand compassion to include those beings with whom we have a close connection, and from there expand it even further to develop immeasurable compassion for all sentient beings. We accomplish this through the mahayana practice of mind training, which the Karmapa discusses here with great clarity and insight. An overview of the vajrayana method of meditation on Chenrezik, the bodhisattva of compassion, is also included.
