A teaching on Compassion and Wisdom.
In the beginning of part 1 there is a short discussion on Rebirth before going to the actual topic. Parts 1-2 deal with with Compassion – the opposite of all kleshas or negative emotions – and also with Wisdom. By generating compassion we also increase our wisdom, and the more there is wisdom, the more there is compassion. Part 3 is on Wisdom. In part 4 we are introduced the 3 activities needed for training in bringing these teachings into our own experience: study, reflection, and meditation. Part 5 is a short session with questions and answers.
