A Compassionate Heart

4 week meditation course starting week beginning 8 April

Compassion is a mind that sincerely wishes to liberate living beings from suffering permanently.

It is a pure and positive mind that finds the suffering of others unbearable, but that doesn’t make us depressed. In fact, it gives us tremendous energy to work for the sake of others and powers us on our spiritual path.

At the moment we are unable to benefit all living beings but we have the potential for this ability, which is part of our Buddha nature. Through practising the meditations on taking and giving with strong compassion for all living beings, our potential to be able to benefit all living beings will ripen, and when this happens we shall become an enlightened being.

Only human beings can train like this. Compassion is the very essence of a spiritual life and the main practice of those who have devoted their lives to attaining enlightenment.

Whenever we encounter anyone, we should recall how they are suffering and develop compassion for them. Then, just seeing a living being will be like finding a rare and precious treasure. This is because the compassion we experience upon meeting others is a supreme inner wealth that is an inexhaustible source of benefit for us in both this and future lives.

Come along to find out about these essential practices to improve both our love and our compassion.
