The Heart of Compassion

Compassion dictates that we relieve suffering. Who among us isn’t moved by daily news stories and images of misery across the globe?

But most of us probably feel that there’s not much we can do about it.

If I see an image of a starving child, an oppressive regime, or a grieving mother—what am I to do?

There is something you can do. You can work to eliminate your own suffering.

In fact, it’s the only way.

On this website, you will find resources to help you do just that.

It is our wish that you find the world’s solutions in your own heart, in the light of your own awakened understanding.

We are committed to helping you. Please join us in this effort to end suffering, one person at a time.

Many Blessings, James and Aly
