In the Buddhist religion, a Bodhisattva is also known as a “Buddha of Compassion.” Kuan Yin is such a famous version of a bodhisattva. Kuan Yin is well known here in the West. Today I gave a talk at my church called “Assemblage of Arete,” in which we strive for the good life and a life of excellence. The theme today was the Aim of Compassion. Please note that as Monk Ken, I am also in the Paracelsian Order.

Here is a link to the text of today’s talk.

This is a photo of a Japanese statue of this bodhisattva.
