The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
Jack Kornfield's Dharma Talks
Jack Kornfield
Over the years of teaching, I've found a growing need for profound lovingkindness and compassion--a transformation of the heart--to underlie the insights and understandings that come out of the practice. An opening of the mind needs to be supported by compassion from the heart if the practice is to be integrated, fulfilled, and lived in our lives.

This talk was given on the theme of compassion in honor of Veterans' Day. Compassion is the natural relationship of the heart to sorrow -- the movement of the heart in sympathy with other beings and with one's self. Relating to life with compassion allows us to move through this world of birth and death, of joy and sorrow with wisdom and grace.
