Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikh religion, gave us so many simple yet profound teachings. One of my favourites of his teachings has been : Contentment within and Compassion without.
What he is trying to say is that any pain or suffering of our own we should accept with equanimity. Accept everything as His grace. We should always be content. But we should have compassion for other’s pain, for their suffering.
My wife passed away very young, at the peak of her life. I need to accept it, I need to be content. But if someone else loses a spouse I can’t say this happens, be content. I need to have compassion for their loss and their pain.
Can God accept the worship of one who has not loving-kindness in his heart?
Live with compassion
It will fill you with love 💕
If we don’t have compassion what have we?!
Compassion is a divine soul quality and it can be cultivated; watch this :
