Simharava, living in the women’s residential Buddhist community in Berlin, Germany, talks about how she is trying to help alleviate suffering at the moment and, in particular, shares her thoughts on the Buddhist figure of the Avalokiteshvara - associated with Great Compassion - who holds the wish-fulfilling jewel to his heart.

Noting how Avalokiteshvara listens to the suffering in the world but at the same time radiates rainbow light and compassion, Simharava explores how that myth might play out in her own life.
