Subject: [Buddhaviharas] Thanissaro Bhikkhu on Compassion
"The whole purpose of the practice is learning how to find happiness in the midst of a lot of suffering in the world. We realize that we can't end other people's sufferings � we can make sure that we're as little a burden as possible on other people - but the issue of the suffering that goes deep into the mind � that's each person's responsibility, and you want to take care of that. Because the more you're suffering the more you do place a burden on others. This is why this is not a selfish path."
From: From Heedfulness to Purity by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (August 2011)
