This is a guilt free zone. No martyrdom. No drudgery allowed.
Yes, Spontaneous Compassionate Activity is the final stage of the Path of Practice, the fruit of the Buddha’s Path, and the culmination of all our efforts towards Awakening. All very lofty! But, Surprise! We are already practicing this perfection every time we smile at a stranger, offer a helping hand, a pencil, a kind word.
We do not have to contort ourselves into a different kind of being, morose, determined, doing good because we've been told we should . We just have to respond to the natural impulse of our hearts to feel
compassion, wish well, and create happiness with others. The Mahayana sutras describe Bodhisattvas benefitting all beings, while playing like elephants, cavorting and splashing in cool, clear pools of water filled with tasty lotuses.
Come splash with us and learn to awaken delight for the benefit of all beings!
