Scrap Book

The human has been stealing a few moments here and there to build a new website. It's not yet ready for prime time but I convinced him to share a couple of photos that will be appearing on it. I have my very own page--a digital scrap book! When the website goes live it will just have a handful of pictures in the scrap book but it will grow over time.

The View From Here: So Close Edition

Love Gives Life to Our Compassion

Years ago the human had the opportunity to spend some time with Gelek Rimpoche. He's a funny, peaceful, and powerful man. Did I mention funny? On top of all of that, how often does one get to hang out with the nephew of the Dali Lama?

This is a long clip. It's a clip that one needs to listen to carefully to understand because Rimpoche has a bit of an accent. It's worth the time however. He serves up a nice lesson about compassion -- both simple and complex.

Are you willing to build compassion bit by bit? A compassion for all living beings? "That greater compassion.. [of] ultimate, unlimited, unconditional, compassion?"
