From London to Los Angeles it seems like it’s the age of compassion. I hear it everywhere I go. Politicians are selling it, advertisers are packaging it, gurus are preaching it, and movie stars are wearing it.

Whoever wishes to attain Buddhahood does not need to train in many teachings but needs only to train in one—that of great compassion.
