In 2014, Khentrul Lodrö T’hayé Rinpoche established a program among his students and practice groups called Compassion in Action. As he said, “Being Buddhist doesn’t just mean sitting on a cushion. The purpose of sitting is to develop our positive qualities in order to benefit others.” Compassion in Action’s two main goals are to help others in our local communities and to do it together as sangha in order to build our sense of community among practitioners. Here are stories and pictures of our Compassion in Action activities to help inspire each other to greater and greater acts of compassion.
