Although commonly translated simply as compassion, Nying Je connotes love, affection, kindness, gentleness, generosity of spirit, and warmth. Most importantly, Nying Je denotes a feeling of connection with others, the Sovereign Heart that aspires to eliminate the suffering of others, and wishes that all may embrace happiness and the causes of happiness.
When we recite the Name of the Buddha, we awaken the Sovereign Heart.
When we perform acts of compassion, we nurture the Sovereign Heart.
When we meditate, we stabilize the Sovereign Heart.
This is the mission of our humble center, Nying Je Ling, the Abode of the Sovereign Heart.
