"Compassion and consideration, even when they do not seem to have an effect on the other, release calming and healing forces in your own body."
From Harry Palmer in "The Avatar Masters Handbook."
"The essence of compassion is open, vast and all embracing. ... Generating compassion for others progressively sharpens our intelligence, opens our minds and widens our vistas."
-- From Teacher Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche in "Living Fully, Finding Joy in Every Breath"
