We Must Act

DLIt is not enough to feel compassion. We must act. 

There are two aspects to action. One is to overcome the distortions and afflictions of our own mind, calming and eventually dispelling anger. 

The other is more social, more public. When something needs to be done in the world to rectify wrongs, if we are really concerned with benefiting others, we need to be engaged, involved.

Tenzin Gyatso, the XIV Dalai Lama
