How do we have a creative response to suffering, without either getting overwhelmed or turning away? This FBA Dharmabyte, ‘Embodying Compassion in the World’, illustrates the keep kindness of the Buddha with the story of Kisagotami.
In this talk, given on a work retreat at Taraloka, Maitrisiddhi describes the Bodhisattva Ideal with the myth of Avalokitesvara. She explores the crucial interrelationship between keeping our own personal practice and inspiration at our hearts and being able to continuously act for the benefit of the world. Excerpted from the talk Avalokiteshvara and the Creative Heart by Maitrisiddhi.
