Importance of a calm mind ~ Tsoknyi Rinpoche

Without calmness of mind, it is very hard to have a sense of delight. Without this sense of delight, there is no genuine compassion. If we are totally preoccupied with our own experience — how I feel, what my problem is, and so forth — there is no chance at all for us to care about how others feel. There is simply no room for compassion.
