Compassion & Sympathy

When someone is impure in bodily, verbal, and mental conduct, one should do what one can out of compassion and sympathy, thinking, “Oh, may this person abandon wrong bodily conduct and develop right bodily conduct, abandon wrong verbal conduct and develop right verbal conduct, abandon wrong mental conduct and develop right mental conduct. Why is that? So that, on the break-up of the body, after death, they won’t fall into the plane of deprivation, the bad destination, the lower realms.”

Ven. Shariputra, Aghatavinaya Sutta

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.
