compassion

A Quote by Adyashanti on you are not a problem, compassion, self, peace, and understanding

Can you imagine if you really let it in that you are not a problem to be solved in any way?  Imagine you knew that anything that would tell you otherwise is just a movement of thought in the mind that says "Whatever is, isn't the way it is supposed to be."  So the biggest act of compassion starts within.  And when the self is no longer seen as a problem, this is called "the peace that passes all understanding."

A Quote by Shantideva on buddhism, compassion, and attachment

My body, thus, and all my good besides,
And all my merits gained and to be gained,
I give them all away withholding nothing
To bring about the benefit of beings.

All those who slight me to my face,
Or do me any other evil,
Even if they blame or slander me,
May they attain the fortune of enlightenment!

A Quote by vow of the bodhisattva on bodhisattva vow, buddhahood, misery, wisdom, compassion, joyous effort, buddha, dharma, and sangha

With the wish to free all beings
until we reach full awakening
I will always go for refuge
To the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha

Today, in the presence of the enlightened ones
Inspired by Wisdom, Compassion and Joyous Effort
I generate the mind aspiring to full buddhahood
For the Well-being of all Sentient beings.

For as long as space endures
and as long as sentient beings remain
until then, may I too, abide
to dispel the misery of the world.

A Quote by Tsoknyi Rinpoche on fearless, simplicity, freedom, bodhisattva, spirit, two accumulations, compassion, expands, unity, care for others, know within yourself, and how to be free

    "The true bodhisattva spirit grows out of this personal sense of freedom.  You discover that you don't feel so needy anymore.  You don't crave another refueling - with shamatha or with other people's love and attention - because you know within yourself how to be free, how to be confident.  With this sense of security and freedom, you begin to direct your attention to the needs of others.  The compassion expands.  This is my point about inner simplicity as the basis for living fearlessly in a complex world.
    This principle of fearless simplicity involves training in the two accumulations as a unity and experiencing the fruition of such training.  We have found a true, effective remedy for ego-clinging, negative emotions, the twofold ignorance, and adversity.  We have persevered in the two accumulations, and we have grown confident in liberation.  We are now open and spacious, and from within that sense of fearless simplicity, we can accomadate all phenomena.  We can naturally care for others unpretentiously; no one is a threat any longer."

A Quote by Shantideva on bodhisattva, compassion, and buddhism

For sentient beings, poor and destitute,
May I become a treasure ever plentiful,
And lie before them closely in their reach,
A varied source of all that they might need.

A Quote by Shantideva on bodhisattva, compassion, and buddhism

And so let beings do to me
Whatever does not bring them injury.
Whenever they catch sight of me,
Let this not fail to bring them benefit.
