Developing Universal Compassion
What Happens When We Open Our Hearts?
None of us lives in isolation. We are all intimately connected with family, friends, even strangers, and in fact every living being on the planet. It is crucial for our own well-being, and the well-being of the world, that we not only come to understand this, but that we make the shift to open our hearts to this reality. If we discover our deep and natural capacity for great love and compassion, we become healers, forces for peace.
We will base this series of classes on Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book, Universal Compassion, a practical and inspiring text that explains Buddha’s teachings for accomplishing this meaningful goal. Through this clear commentary and meditation, we can begin to experience a direct and healing experience of great compassion.
