Compassion Teaching

I’m guessing that by now, many of us have heard His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s teachings on compassion. This morning, I found one I hadn’t heard before, a 1993 public talk in the UK, with Geshe Thupten Jinpa on stage as translator. Compassion is a profound topic and yet one that not everyone delves into and defines. 

It’s clear that we all should study and live compassion first and foremost – before culture, nationality, religion, doctrine, or identity. Listen to the teachings of Venerable Yuttadhammo Bhikkhu for insights on compassion without attachment. His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote ‘Ethics for a New Millennium’, (a New York Times bestseller), a great book and one I recommend on the subject of compassion. You don’t have to be Buddhist to benefit from these teachings.

Live in peace.
