Compassion and the Buddha

The Weeping Buddha …

weepingBudddha

It takes strength to come face to face with our own suffering and the suffering of the world.

The weeping Buddha, as seen in the picture, represents the power and strength of compassion, of connecting deeply to our own sorrows and the sorrows of the world. At times this burden is just too much and all of us , including the Buddha , and we can be brought to tears.

There is power in emotions and there is strength. We experience  transformation in its release… We experience  compassion and connection.
