The depth and vastness of the Dharma restores the foundation, purpose, and direction of human life, inspiring a way of living oriented toward loving-kindness, compassion, and selflessness. In this introduction to Buddhist history we explore what it means to live a life dedicated to compassion. We also trace the movement of the Dharma through India before the Common Era. 

Additional Information

 In Part 2 of Compassion in Action, we explore what it means to live a life dedicated to compassion and wisdom, tracing the movement of the Dharma through different times and cultures, looking at biographies of great masters, men and women from India and Tibet. We will also continue to cultivate inner capabilities for compassionate wisdom and deepen the knowledge of cause and effect through studying interdependent arising (pratityasamutpada).
