MINDFULNESS AND COMPASSION - MEDITATION and the AWAKENING HEART
“Compassion is the most powerful purification in the world. Many people say: I’m so impure; please give me powerful purification. Nothing to give! One has to open one’s mind. That’s the solution. That IS the solution”- Lama Yeshe
Wisdom that sees the true nature of reality and a compassionate heart come together in the mind of a buddha. Through meditation we clear the way to see things as they are, and wisdom grows. With wisdom we see the suffering nature of our own lives and of those of around us, and compassion grows.
Through the practice of mindfulness and reflective meditation we will deepen our attentive awareness and expand our compassionate approach to relationships with others, ourselves and life in general.
