Today's Daily Dharma,
"In terms of commitment, I think Buddhist practice is by its very nature social change. It cultivates compassion, which is the source of transformation. The word means "suffering with." Thus compassion arises from a deep place of receptivity and listening that is the beginning of healing. What we are talking about broadly is the healing of the world, a journey of a thousand years."
-Paul Hawken, "The Movement With No Name" (Fall 2008)
