“Compassion is not a perfect translation when we speak on the 'mind' of compassion in these contexts. We are not speaking of an emotional state. We are referring to an aspect of the Self that is a warrior mind, unshakeable, and open. It is the foundation of our ability to transform suffering in this world and within ourselves.”
