Weapons of Compassion: The Four Karmas

November 4 – 6, Karmê Chöing (in person and online)

Compassion is peaceful at heart but also must actively engage with sharp clarity, like a crystal sword. In the Buddhist tradition, there are four awakened and compassionate actions (karmas): pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and destroying. How do we know what is appropriate? In particular, how do we work with aggression and hatred? When must we “destroy”? How do we stop a violent attack without being consumed by anger and hate?

Confusion is just a gust of wind
which swirls over our wakefulness.
