Great Compassion is Natural Peacefulness

Book coverIn the state of great compassion, you experience a natural state of peacefulness. This has nothing to do with euphoric pleasure, such as the absence of hassles. In this case, peace is a quality of vast space. Even though your schedule might be interrupted by occasional upheavals, you are not perturbed and you do not give in to them. Therefore, there is a quality of conquering and an experience of peace, of being at ease.

From “Joining Profundity and Vastness” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume Two, by Chögyam Trungpa, page 125
