As we wake in the morning and before we go to sleep at night, we remind ourselves that our goal is to develop and realise compassion. This is all we need. Other meditations and mantras are useful but it is only compassion that embodies the very deepest wisdom. To carry out our decision to liberate every sentient being, our day should begin and end with the thought of removing all suffering for everyone, forever.
— Ringu Tulku Rinpoche
