“When you cultivate love and compassion for all beings, that means every being, including yourself.” Chamtrul Rinpoche
Have you been feeling overwhelmed, disillusioned or fearful recently? You’re not alone. The first noble truth acknowledges the existence and inevitability of suffering in our lives. Yet, within every human heart is an innate and profoundly sustaining capacity for compassion. This capacity allows us to acknowledge the suffering of ourselves and others, and to respond with kindness and understanding rather than judgment or avoidance. Compassion is both an individual and collective practice that can transform the world around us.
