An Open Heart
Practicing Compassion in Everyday LifeLarge Print - 2001
Compassion -- sympathy for the suffering of others and the desire to free them from it-is wrestled with in all spiritual traditions. Yet how does one actually become a compassionate person? What are the mechanisms by which a selfish heart is transformed into a generous heart? When His Holiness the Dalai Lama came to New York in 1999, he spoke simply and powerfully on the everyday Buddhist practice of compassion. Weaving together the contents of several sacred texts, he showed that the path to compassion is a series of meditations. An Open Heart lays out this course of meditation, from the simplest to the most challenging, describing the mental training techniques that will enable anyone of any faith to change their minds and open their hearts.
