Compassion + Action = Karunā

Posted on April 2, 2018 in Gentle Messages | Comments Off on Compassion + Action = Karunā

“Searching for the right English word to explain or describe a concept, and coming to the conclusion that there is no one word happens. Either the word is inadequate or unsuitable for the desirable context. A word that is resonating with me is karunā, which translated into English means compassion but the Thai language takes it beyond a passive involvement to one of action. Not only are you feeling for another’s pain, you are then helping them alleviate that “shared” pain. To be compassionate is spiritually beautiful; to embody karunā is to be spiritually beautiful and engaged.”

To your Happiness,
