Basic Goodness and Compassion: View

Just like awareness is inherent within our basic goodness, Mingyur Rinpoche explains that love and compassion are also always present. Nevertheless, we experience suffering, pain, and stress. In this video, Mingyur Rinpoche introduces practices aimed at understanding this seeming paradox.
