The Circle of Compassion

imagescaxv6wkuWhen a drop falls on the surface of still waters, concentric waves are formed. These waves always travel from the center toward the periphery —never in the opposite direction.

Similarly, when we cultivate spirituality, we start our practice with those beings closest to us.

If we can help to reduce the suffering and increase the happiness of our neighbor (in the strict sense of the word), gradually the circle of love and compassion will expand to encompass all beings.

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
