The foundation of Mahayana Buddhism is compassion that extends to every living being without exception. This universal compassion underlies all the methods that help us fully develop the potential of our human mind and blossom into enlightened beings.

But compassion and our other positive emotions, such as kindness and sympathetic joy, need the support of critical intelligence. Without the wisdom eye to guide it, the heart is blind. Without the reasoning that sees how all beings are equal in their wish to be free from suffering, our compassion easily becomes partial. On the other hand, wisdom without compassion lacks the warmth necessary for us to progress along the path and overcome challenges. Therefore, wisdom and compassion must guide one another, like two people in a harmonious marriage. This union of wisdom and compassion is the true practice of the bodhisattva.

This weekend program with Venerable Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche will consist of 5 talks and will be held at Naropa University. Program details forthcoming.
