The value of Compassion....

''Let go of all efforts ,search and desires,for He can be felt only in deep peace and stillness .''
                                                                   Sri Sri Ravi Shankar .

''Thare are two ways that one can spread light in this world -either by becoming a candle or by becoming a mirror that reflects.''
            Vikas Malkani .

                            The value of Compassion....

Author Fredrick Buechner describes the meaning of compassion in these words:''Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin .It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.''

Compassion stems  from wisdom .It is the fundamental law of Nature's own heart.It allows one to become one with Divine Universe ,with the universal life and consciousness .Compassion denotes harmony,peace,bliss and impersonal love.It is often regarded as emotional in nature ,and there is an aspect of compassion which regards a quantitative dimension ,such that individual's compassion is often given a property of ''depth'',''vigour ''or ''passion''The etimology of compassion is Latin ,meaning ''co-suffering ''.More virtuous than simple empathy ,compassion commonly gives rise to an active desire to alleviate another's suffering .It is often ,though not inevitably,the key component in what manifests in the social context as altruism.
                                                 It automatically brings happieness and calmness.Hatred,jealousy,and excessive attachment cause suffering and agitation.Compassion helps you overcome these to move into a calm state of mind.Practise of compassion actually calms you down considerably and builds up your emotional intelligence.
                        A kindly thought sent out towards some other human being is a protection to the other and it is a beautiful thing to do.It is truly humane and one that every sensitive human being loves to do so.Do not judge rashly or interpret the actions of others in an ill sense,but be compassionate to thier infirmities,bear their  burdens,excuse their weaknesses and make up for their defects-this is the true spirit of compassion and charity.
