72 Compassion, part 3

07 Oct 2011

Compassion, understood as the suffering of conditioned phenomena, is conditioned by ignorance. Suffering in its broadest manifestation involves the understanding of a dualistic vision. How we tend to see others as outer, ourselves as inner, and experience suffering as if we are its personal victims. But there are 7 billion people on earth, meaning that there are 7 billion universes. The core message of Dzogchen is that we have all created our personal universe, and that we can all be free, if we simply understand what’s going on.
