As dharma students, we're asked to cultivate love and compassion for all living beings. This is something that we can learn. It's a skill. It's a skill that, when developed, enables us to know a greater happiness in life. The talk by Peter Doobinin was given at a Meditation & Yoga Retreat in 2019.
As a mother would risk her life
to protect her child, her only child,
even so should one cultivate a limitless heart
with regard to all beings.
