The Dalai Lama on Unbiased Compassion.

"Without a sense of equanimity, unbiased love and compassion cannot even get started." - Dalai Lama

When our hearts are in turmoil, is it really possible to give love and compassion unconditionally? In order to give freely of our selves and our spirits, we must find a way to quiet this 'innermost storm.'

“In order to lead a meaningful life, you need to cherish others, pay attention to human values and try to cultivate inner peace.” ― Dalai Lama XIV

His Holiness the Dalai Lama speaks about unbiased compassion in this clip from the question and answer session with Thai Buddhists held at his residence in Dharamsala, India, on March 15th, 2011.
