Namaste,

I have not been blogging recently as I have been working on the Upanishads books with Ram Dass. Something we discussed during our work was the question of why the great beings continue to act in the world after being enlightened. The Upanishads teach that all living beings, all things are part of Brahman. But why then should we feed the poor? why should we care for the welfare of others? We agreed it was compassion. Overwhelming compassion arises when you see the beloved in all beings, to serve others is the same as to serve oneself. Ram Dass said it is no different then eating with two different hands. What do you think of this?
