What is true compassion?

  • May 22, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • Private Residence
  • Please join us as we continue our contemplation and discussion series! This week we will be discussing the true meaning of compassion. We often use or hear this term when discussing Buddhism — but do we truly know how to practice compassion for ourselves and others? What does it actually look like in practice?

    This week we will also recite special mantras that can help clear our minds and stabilize our practice. Hope you can participate with us!


    What is True Compassion?

    Palo Alto Buddhist Study Group

    Wednesday, May 22, 6:45 - 8:45 pm

    245 College Ave., Apt. C

    "The main point of cultivation is to purify our mind. We attach to our five senses too much. Cultivation encourages compassion, patience and humility, and makes your mind more sharp."

    Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche

    We welcome all to join us for a discussion of the teachings of our guru, Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche. This evening will be a wonderful opportunity to familiarize yourself with the principles of Buddhism, no matter your level of experience. All are welcome! Hope you can join us, and bring a friend!

    For any questions or directions, please call Julie at[masked]-8420. Please RSVP through Meet Up to help us with our planning. Thanks, and see you soon!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
