After giving the empowerment of the Sixteen Drops of the Kadampa over three days, His Holiness resumes his reading transmission of the Jataka Tales. In the tale of the Ruru Deer, the Bodhisattva’s compassion even extends to protecting one who had repaid an earlier kindness with betrayal, revealing that the root of all virtue is in compassion. The truly virtuous benefit others even at their own expense.
