Summary
"We see so much pain and injustice in the world--from racial discrimination to environmental degradation. How can we make a positive difference? Beloved Buddhist teacher Anam Thubten invites us to deepen our practice of compassion. Through personal practices that expand our awareness of connectedness with the world, we will be able to act with courage for the benefit of all. With characteristic warmth, Anam Thubten shares reflections, meditations, and practices that any reader--whether Buddhist or not--can embrace. He writes, "If our hearts are open and we can bear witness to the suffering around us, we will be able to act from that and help relieve suffering in whatever small or big ways we can. It will not be insignificant, and our compassion will include all beings no matter how small they are. Each compassionate act will change us and will expand our boundaries and show us what transcendence means. Then, we will begin more and more to lose the feeling that we are separate from everybody else. In this way, we can widen the circle of love."--
