Compassion in Community

Compassion in Community

The 2nd Unitarian Universalist (UU) Principle 
calls on each and everyone 
to have compassion for one another

From Old Turtles to Wise Monkeys, 
where does your compassion come from?

The Word Compassion comes from Latin and means "to suffer together with", perhaps to struggle together with, or to say you have some pains and I have some pains. Your pain might be different then mine but I still see you are a beautiful person. I have COMPASSION for you.

Questions to Ponder with your family and friends:
  • Who do you know that is easy to have compassion for?       How come?
  • Who is it really hard to have compassion for? Why?
  • Does RELIGION have a part to any of this, What is folks of all different religions?

The Taras are a set of Tibetan Buddhist female deities representing compassion
and other benefic traits.
