Compassion is a powerful way to purify our mind. If our mind is pure, the objects of our mind are also pure. We shall experience everything - our environment, enjoyments, body, and mind - as pure. With a pure mind we can see holy beings such as Buddhas and Bodhisattvas directly."
— Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
