The Power of Compassion – Podcast Episode No. 22


The extraordinary, upside down logic of Shambhala is that compassion is actually the natural activity of a mind that is settled.  It is the activity stemming from being completely present, feeling and seeing other. It is the most natural activity because it is based on being present and accessing what is inherently our nature.
