Description

Compassion ('Karuṇā') has the miraculous, transformative power to uplift our mind, keep it bright and whoesome and confident, and raise it above the pain and distress we experience when we witness intense suffering in other beings.


The Buddha himself radiated such strong compassion that everyone meeting him felt a sense of relief and unburdening from whatever suffering ('dukkha') they were experiencing.


Similar, albeit on a more modest level, we all can use the power of compassion in our heart and direct it to others, in order to provide some subtle and subconsciously felt alleviation of their pain.
