The Dark Rich Soil of Compassion

Here's a compassion contemplation from Buddhist Peace Fellowship, an organization that cultivates compassionate social action.

Knowing that we are interconnected,
I open my heart to the suffering of others.
In the rich, dark soil of compassion,
I nurture deep roots of solidarity,
finding those tender, alive places
where our struggles interweave.

From rootedness i grow toward peace, justice, and collective liberation.
