Infinite Compassion

March 8, 2013

book coverI would like to mention my visit to Lourdes as a pilgrim. There, in front of the cave, I experienced something very special. I felt a spiritual vibration, a kind of spiritual presence there. And then, in front of the image of the Virgin Mary, I prayed. I expressed my admiration for this holy place that has long been a source of inspiration and strength, that has provided spiritual solace, comfort and healing to millions of people. And I prayed that this may continue for a long time to come. My prayer there was not directed to any clearly defined object, like Buddha or Jesus Christ or a bodhisattva, but was simply directed to all great beings who have infinite compassion towards all sentient beings.

From The Pocket Dalai Lama, page 22.

    So glad to hear your experience, I think we all are great beings and looking for the same things. I keep this in my mind, We are all in this together, so be kind to one another and help each other.

    I experience these types of vibration on a daily basis, for me they act as a guide to reaffirm truth and that I am on my spiritual path. Agape and Namaste!
