|F da po-po? Love thy enemy?|
|It is right to question authority (Kalama Sutra)|
Compassion is not only something I do when I’m meditating. I can cultivate wise intentions and wholesome thoughts while I sit. I can send metta or loving kindness to abstract strangers around the world, but that is only part of my practice.
