From Words of Wisdon from His Holiness the Dalai Lama:

Living with Compassion and Foregiveness would mean that other people would have to put their egos away every now and again. Thats not something that comes easily to everyone.

Does that mean that compassion and forgiveness are not valid? Certainly putting an ego away is not easy for anyone. That's why it's so important in Buddhism..

Would have loved to have met/seen the Dalai Lama on my trip to India next week in Dharamsala, but he will be in the US. Next time. I'm just reading the book The Jew in the Lotus about several rabbis being invited to give a presentation to the Dalai Lama.

I feel that these things are nice. I am not certain of their importance. I don't want to start a fight and I really do like your site so I'm not sure I want to play a Devil's Advocate either. While I may believe that you could be wrong in the importance of Compassion and Forgiveness, I hope that you are not. I hope that they are the keys to getting along and getting through life and that more people will practice them.

Sometimes the best learners play the devil's advocate.

Also, these are not my words or ideas, but those of His Holiness, who I believe is far wiser than I am.
