Daily Wisdom / Dalai Lama

Infinite Compassion

book coverI would like to mention my visit to Lourdes as a pilgrim. There, in front of the cave, I experienced something very special. I felt a spiritual vibration, a kind of spiritual presence there. And then, in front of the image of the Virgin Mary, I prayed. I expressed my admiration for this holy place that has long been a source of inspiration and strength, that has provided spiritual solace, comfort and healing to millions of people. And I prayed that this may continue for a long time to come. My prayer there was not directed to any clearly defined object, like Buddha or Jesus Christ or a bodhisattva, but was simply directed to all great beings who have infinite compassion towards all sentient beings.

From The Pocket Dalai Lama, page 22.
