Those who make compassion

an essential part of their lives

find the joy of life.

Kindness deepens the spirit

and produces rewards

that cannot be completely explained in words.

It is an experience more powerful than words.

To become acquainted with kindness

one must be prepared to learn new things

and feel new feelings.

Kindness is more

than a philosophy of the mind.

It is a philosophy of the spirit.

If you know the psychological nature

of your own mind,

depression is spontaneously dispelled;
instead of being enemies and strangers,

all living beings become your friends.
The narrow mind rejects;

wisdom accepts.
Check your own mind to see whether or not this is true.

What wisdom can you find
that is greater than kindness?
