Compassion must pierce the heart, in such a way that the heart is translated into action.
This is a quote from A Call to Compassionate Action – a daylong teaching given by The 17th Karmapa in Seattle recently.
Robert Sperry was at this event and will give us a short report on the teaching and then we can have a discussion on the hows, whens and ifs of how we act with compassion (and, of course, the nots and don’ts).
This is a link to the Karmapa’s website. There are some webcasts on the site but not from the Seattle event.
The schedule is:
6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
The sitting takes place at BIBS – location in the sidebar.
