The Dalai Lama on compassion

  • December 3, 2018

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.  Without them humanity cannot survive.     He says that as human beings we are all the same. We all want happiness and do not want suffering. If our minds are at peace even physical pain will not disturb our calm. (If our minds are upset, physical comfort will not bring peace.) He advocates the cultivation of warm-heartedness and human values such as compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline. He is concerned with encouraging people to be happy.

This is not compassion

  • November 29, 2018

We are required to welcome strangers. The people running from the south to the north, many of them for months, are running from fear and danger sufficient to drive them from their homes, often with small children in tow. They all know the United States is the world’s pre-eminent nation of immigrants. And they believe the story that the United States is a place to seek a better life. At our border, they should be welcomed in the moment, and then their stories should be heard before we decide how to accept them into our nation, or not, as the case may deserve. Many people believe in God and the words...

All you need is love

  • November 27, 2018

Compassion In essentially all religions, once you get past the rules about God, the first value that is said to be universal is compassion and respect for everyone. No one can earn respect from others if they are not compassionate and considerate toward them.* Buddha said that we must love our enemies as well, and that loving everyone, even the one who hates, is true compassion.* It can be argued that the fundamental core ethical value among humans is "The Golden Rule," which basically says “One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.” That one goes back at least...

What to do:

  • October 29, 2018

“To live without the daily sacrifice of selfless service – to work just for oneself, or worse, to do nothing at all – is simply to be a thief.” -The Bhagavad Gita Which is to say, any amount of self service for pleasure or desire is a sinful detraction from the Main Universal System Thing (MUST). Work with the System. Serve the Creation. Never stop. NEXT

Governing thoughts of the Gita

  • June 12, 2018

Focus on selfless duty The central concept of a Universe exploding from God consciousness is the willingness to embrace this presence and turn all of one's attention to realizing the manifestation of God's process. The implication is that one has no time for pleasure or desire. "The ignorant work for their own profit; the wise work for the welfare of the world, without thought for themselves." "To live without the daily sacrifice of selfless service – to work just for oneself, or worse, to do nothing at all – is simply to be a thief." -The Bhagavad Gita NEXT

more from Lord Krishna

  • May 17, 2018

who are these creatures? Krishna says "These creatures...move in me as the winds move in every direction in space." These creatures are our individual essences. Which Lord Krishna - who is, after all, God manifest - calls the Self. He says, Those who know me as their own divine Self break through the belief that they are the body and are not reborn as separate creatures. Such a one is united with me. Delivered from selfish attachment, fear, and anger, filled with me, surrendering themselves to me, purified in the fire of my being, many have reached the state of unity in me. As...

in the Bhagavad Gita

  • May 17, 2018

Lord Krishna, a manifestation of God, explains I pervade the entire universe in my unmanifested form. All creatures find their existence in me, but I am not limited by them. Behold my divine mystery! These creatures do not really dwell in me, and though I bring them forth and support them, I am not confined within them. They move in me as the winds move in every direction in space. At the end of the eon these creatures return to unmanifested matter; at the beginning of the next cycle I send them forth again.   . NEXT

the Perennial Philosophy

  • May 17, 2018

There is a deep cultural framework for this idea of ubiquitous God consciousness. Aldous Huxley described the Perennial Philosophy that appears in every age and civilization: (1) there is an infinite, changeless reality beneath the world of change; (2) this same reality lies at the core of every human personality; (3) the purpose of life is to discover this reality experientially: that is, to realize God while here on earth.* If it is given that God consciousness is everywhere including entirely within and around each of us, then each of us is in complete and perfect contact...
