Too often a compassionate feeling is left inactive. "Compassion NOW!" is a work that not only focuses on how love and compassion are the root of all Buddhist practices, but is a call to put these compassionate feelings into action in the world. From a teaching given in India in 2010, His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa sets forth that compassion for oneself is the starting point from which we can expand to other beings with whom we have a close connection, and then further to an immeasurable compassion for all beings through the Mahayana practice of mind training, which he discusses with clarity and insight. An overview of the Vajrayana method of meditation on Chenrezik, the bodhisattva of compassion, is also included, where His Holiness guides our attention to the central role of the practice: cultivation of compassion.
About the Author
Motivated by the purest of compassion, the Byalwang Karmapas have taken rebirth continuously since the eleventh century. The present seventeenth incarnation, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, was born in Eastern Tibet in 1985. Seven years later he was recognized by a letter of prediction and brought to Tsurphu Monastery, the seat of the Karmapas in Tibet. There he received a traditional education in practice and philosophy, and at the turn of the millennium, he journeyed over the Himalayas to India where he presently resides. Known for his clear and direct teaching style, the youthful Karmapa radiates the brilliance of his heritage, connecting with our daily lives and our deepest aspirations.
