Devotion and compassion can take us very close to absolute reality. Devotion opens the heart, where our essential energy or awareness resides, manifesting itself as inner guidance.

Devotion means surrendering to this higher energy, this pure awareness. Surrender requires openness, allowing the Dharma to reach our hearts. Compassion provides the door.

When our compassion is strong enough, it inspires our devotion; and when we have both devotion and compassion – there is balance and harmony.
