It's easy to become overwhelmed by the suffering of the world, to despair that there is little we can do to help. But it's possible to develop the huge compassion of the bodhisattva: the enthusiasm and confidence to never give up working to help others. The key is to develop wisdom: to understand our own suffering and how to overcome it.
Venerable Robina will explain the means of cultivating such courageous compassion and inspire you to take this path of the bodhisattva.
