Compassion arises through ceaseless manifestations, as the stories collected in this book demonstrate. Through their lucid and memorable insights, these stories lead us to one fundamental truth: Compassion is the essence of all authentic spirituality and transcends any definitions and differences of religions.
The Wonderful stories that Pamela Bloom has collected give us a precious glimpse into the heart of service the Buddha discovered more than 2,600 years ago. Poignant and courageous, these modern stories show that Buddhism is not a dry, dustry religion but a vibrant path with practical solutions for today's real problems. Whether the exalted lamas or ordinary students, the practitioners in this book have taken daring leaps into the unknown of their own being into what might be called visionary compassion.
The stories will help to empower our hearts, embolden our brains, and lead us all together to higher and deeper ground.
