Dzogchen Meditation Retreat in Creta (April 3-8, 2015)

“According to the Holographic Universe Theory of Ecology, all life-forms, including the Earth and the Universe, are closely and infinitely interconnected. From this perspective, it is not difficult to understand the vital importance that compassion of an individual can have on his own happiness and those of others.

By observing and being aware of our inner world, we start to realize that true happiness begins with caring and cherishing others. The best way to love oneself is to love and cherish others. We begin to understand that if we want ourselves and others to be happy, we need to have compassion.”
—By Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche
