THE IMPORTANCE OF CULTIVATING COMPASSION

Master Jun Hong Lu:

Compassion can increase one’s longevity and nurture one’s positive energy. When we witness the compassion of Guan Yin Bodhisattva, we learn that one should always aim to be free from the notion of self — never to be overly selfish but instead, to be ever willing to sacrifice ourselves in the service of others. Only then can we advance from a superficial understanding of Buddhist teachings towards grasping the true essence of Buddha wisdom.
