In this fascinating dialogue between Robert Thurman, Ph.D., and Deepak Chopra, M.D., many concepts relating to compassion, enlightenment, and Buddhism are examined in depth. Some of the conclusions that Thurman and Chopra make include the following:
-The heart of the teaching of the Buddha is that enlightenment is getting to that level of awareness where you realize that the core of your being is the core of every other being on the planet.
-The fundamental ignorance about what we are and what the world is-is the cause of suffering in the world.
-Compassion doesn't just mean feeling the suffering of others, it means really helping them overcome their pain so they can achieve happiness.
This discussion will educate and entertain you, and also inspire you to break out of the hypnosis of cultural conditioning to find your own path to enlightenment.
