“The very reason why Buddhism is complicated, vast and deep is because it is, according to my interpretation, a wisdom-oriented path. So it’s not an ethics- and morality-oriented path. It very much emphasizes understanding the truth...When we talk about wisdom we are talking about seeing something without any interference of cultural or social upbringing, education or one’s own inhibitions. Seeing the truth, basically...

Where does compassion fit in here? If you have this great view that everything is impermanent, interdependent and that there is no such thing as a whole, this very understanding is not only wisdom, it is empathy.”
