Keeping our heart and mind open

Keeping our heart and mind open to experiences of compassion should not depend on being able to do something about another person’s suffering. Feeling compassion is a powerful exercise for the mind, whether or not anything can be done to help. Understanding that compassion is a practice of the mind first and foremost, with the intention to help wherever possible and realistic, is essential to being a practitioner. – Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
