The Sources of Compassion

Gil Fronsdal, Insight Meditation Center

6:30 p.m. Guided meditation

7:30 p.m. Talk

Given that compassion has a central role in the Buddhist spiritual life, what are Buddhists referring to when championing compassion?  How does a person evoke and cultivate compassion in oneself?  What gives rise to compassion and what is its role in Buddhist practice.  Gil Fronsdal will discuss these questions both from his own experience as a Buddhist practitioner and from the earliest Buddhist teachings from India.
