    Thanks for posting this very insightful interview. If I got one thing out of it, it would be “compassionate listening” – it might be easier to practice than the other mantras – at least, it sounds that way. The difficulty appears to be the distractions. Clearing my mind and being “in the moment” would appear to be a tough demand.

    So rich in insight:

    “Respond to events with compassion.”
    “Keep the peace within yourself.”
    “Listen with compassion [to make] the person suffer less.”
    “Practice compassionate, deep listening.”
    “The energy of compassion is very strong.”
    “Fear, anger, and the despair [are] born on the ground of wrong perception.”
    “To be loved means to be recognized as existing.”

    If we take away nothing but the need for COMPASSION, we will be on the right path for a better and happier life and world.

    Thanks for sharing.
