Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares the following message concerning tragic events over the weekend:
Dear dharma friends
This weekend, we witnessed unimaginable suffering.
More than 70 people were killed in a suspected chemical attack in Syria. In Canada, a crash involving a junior ice hockey team killed at least 14 people.
Young lives, innocent lives, have been taken from us in the most tragic of circumstances.
Let us pray for all those who have lost their lives. Let us pray for the parents, the families, and all those who mourn at this time. And let us pray for the end of violence, the end of suffering; and let us pray for peace for all sentient beings.
With compassion and prayers
Thaye Dorje
His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa #Karmapa


菩薩的行為和菩薩的態度 / 慈悲心是我們最好的武器


為拯救他人不要遇溺,我們必先確保自己不會遇溺。我們本身需懂得游泳。所以,如果學習游泳的背後是一種利益他人的推動(在我們的情況而言是利益有情眾生的動機),那就是菩薩行- 菩薩行為和菩薩的態度。

In order to save someone from drowning, we must first make sure that we do not drown. We have to be able to swim. So, if the act of learning how to swim is motivated by a beneficial cause (in our case, the motivation of wanting to benefit sentient beings) then it is a Bodhisattva practice – a Bodhisattva act and Bodhisattva attitude.

Compassion is the best weapon we have

No matter what kind of aggression we feel, the best weapon that we have as human beings is compassion.

This doesn’t mean that we have to constantly offer our cheeks to be slapped, but instead we can very skilfully express this compassion by having great patience, by bearing all the difficulties that we might face.

Compassion can really overcome all forms of obstacles. Of course, that doesn’t mean that suddenly life radically changes and that everything is alright. But somehow, through that practice of compassion, life makes sense. It makes sense to live, it makes sense to move forward, it makes sense to do anything.
