How Can We Remember the Buddha’s Teachings During Conversations, What Does Compassion Mean in Buddhism and more… (Q&A Session August’20)

Duration 52:34

Questions answered during our Q&A session:

6:05 I prefer to write, when communicating with other people, because it gives me time to focus on the emotions and thoughts that arises, when reading the response and by that, it gives me time to practice, what I have learned from Buddhism, so my response will be a result influenced by that teaching. So my challenge is, when I meet people in person and start communicating, I do not have the same time to reflect and respond, and therefore I automatically become my thoughts and my response is a result of that, which makes the communication poor. Do you have any advice on, how I can be more aware of the teaching in the situation and not just after or before?

25:02 When I Google, “Compassion,” this is what pops up as the definition. Compassion [is] sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others. Is this what the Buddha means by compassion?

39:19 Is art from an imagination a worldly activity?
