Since Theosophy purports to be the wisdom that underlies life itself it must be able to address all of life’s challenges and difficulties whether large or small. This section of the web site collates the collective wisdom of humanity into a group of practical themes. Passages from the founders of the Theosophical Movement and from literature and history are all combined together to provide some light on the issues at hand.
This week we highlight our section On Compassion, with a selection from H.P.B.’s The Voice of the Silence.
From the Voice of the Silence
But stay, Disciple… Yet one word. Canst thou destroy divine COMPASSION? Compassion is no attribute. It is the Law of LAWS – eternal Harmony, Alaya’s SELF; a shoreless universal essence, the light of everlasting Right, and the fitness of all things, the law of Love eternal.
The more thou dost become at one with it, thy being melted in its Being, the more thy Soul unites with that which IS, the more thou wilt become COMPASSION ABSOLUTE.
Now bend thy head and listen well, O Bodhisattva –Compassion speaks and saith: “Can there be bliss when all that lives must suffer? Shalt thou be saved and hear the whole world cry?”
