The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
We have now received the mandalas of the Ultimate Tantra That are so very difficult to gain in our aeon. Your kindness is overwhelming, and impossible to repay. Now until I gain enlightenment, Lord, let not your compassion forsake me. Upon your distracted and agitated disciples like me, Lost in states of uneasiness and confusion, We beg you always to look with compassion.
Understanding and Love are not two separate things, but just one. To develop understanding, you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion. When you understand, you cannot help but love. And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.
