MANTRA OF COMPASSION
Summarizing from Deepak Chopra
Today I watched on-line an hour's world-wide teaching from Deepak Chopra on developing love and compassion for self, others, and our planet. The following are some key points Deepak made which might make us all think deeper, as I did as Deepak led viewers in meditation around the world.
Love should lead to Compassion!
Compassion is engagement in changing the world!
Compassion makes us more connected with our self, people of our family, community and around the world!
Extend benevolent feelings to ALL beings!
No real boundaries extend between me and others!
Kindness and Compassion do not require large amounts of money!
Compassion - Thinking of someone else!
Empathy - Feeling what someone else is feeling!
Compassion and Kindness require Empathy!!!!
Environment and living beings are NOT separate - so Both deserve compassionate actions!
BOTH LIVING BEINGS AND OUR ENVIRONMENT ARE PART OF THE UNIVERSE!
UNI-VERSE - ONE SONG - WE ARE ALL ONE!
OM KARUNA SWAHA
(Mantra of Compassion)
Repeating this mantra can transform energy of Love and Compassion to everyone we meet.
Love and Compassion begin with ME!
A MEDITATION FOR COMPASSION:
Breath deeply in... out... in... out.......
Picture someone you love in your mind when he/she is in distress.
How do you feel about that person?
Send thoughts of compassion, harmony, kindness love...
Expand your range to all in your life's community...
Expand attention to those you never met, across geographical boundaries, everyone and living beings on our planet...
Visualize all beings in the world...
Begin repeating OM KARUNA SWAHA - OM KARUNA SWAHA - OM KARUNA SWAHA - OM KARUNA SWAHA over and over...
LOVE AND COMPASSION BEGIN WITH ME...
Feel Compassion welling up from within you...
