Osho examines the nature of compassion from a radically different perspective. He points out that "passion" lies at the root of the word, and then proceeds to challenge assumptions about what compassion really is. He shows how the path to authentic compassion arises from within, beginning with a deep acceptance and love of oneself. Only then, says Osho, does compassion flower into a healing force, rooted in the unconditional acceptance of the other as he or she is.
I heard about compassion meditation when listening to the radio. I am interested in finding out more. However, I am dyslexic and have problems reading anything more than about a paragraph. I do have software which will read things out to me but it would be helpful if I could download or buy some kind of audio material on compassion meditation. I am familiar with mindfulness meditation and have a rough idea of what compassion meditation may be but more detail would be helpful.
