Our compassion, our dedication is not only limited to a circle of close
friends or family. We can go far further and reach out to any individual we come across, meaning eventually all sentient beings, not just humans or animals but beyond that, to all sentient beings of the six different realms and of the entire universe of samsara. No matter how many sentient beings there are, our mind and compassion has the capacity to reach to all equally, without discrimination, no matter how near or far.

#Karmapa on the benefit of compassion
Simply generating compassion and wisdom towards others brings great peace to ourselves, and therefore to all those around us. And this effect, of course, is timeless. The benefit of this teaching has been seen by the Buddha, and it has been seen by the Bodhisattvas – those who follow the way to become Buddhas. They have seen it, they have experienced it, they have realised it.

#Karmapa on practice
The activity of Buddha dharma must go on always. And so we should allpray that we may always have opportunities to practice.There is no way of saying that a certain amount of practice is enough because there is no limit or boundary or final stage. The activity must go on. And it is for this very reason that we continuously generate devotion, generate respect, generate Bodhichitta.
The purpose of Bodhichitta is to generate a very kind and understanding intention or motivation for the benefit of all sentient beings
“A court can say who should manage Rumtek, but no law court can decide who the real 17th Karmapa is…. Soon the arguments should finish. The Karmapa will make himself known by the power of his presence and the benevolent force of his actions.” – Shamar Rinpoche
