Compassion NOW!


By H.H. Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje



Publication Date: July 2011


Too often compassionate feeling is left inactive. Compassion NOW! is a work not only focused on how love and compassion are the root of all Buddhist practices, but is a call to put these compassionate feelings into action in the world. From a teaching given in India in 2010, His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa sets forth that compassion for oneself is the starting point from which we can expand to other beings with whom we have a close connection and then further to an immeasurable compassion for all beings through the Mahayana practice of mind training, which he discusses with clarity and insight. An overview of the Vajrayana method of meditation on Chenrezik, the bodhisattva of compassion, also is included, where His Holiness guides our attention to the central role of the practice: cultivating compassion.
