We humans have been actively destroying our Mother Earth, destroying the environment, killing millions of animals and killing each other. There is a huge gap between poor and rich. Countries’ defence budgets are constantly increasing, thereby creating ever more destructive weapons. We cannot let the current situation continue.

What is causing this? We believe that there is a lack of compassion. The good news is that compassion can be found in each human heart. This compassion needs to be sparked into flame.

We need to create an environment for increasing our natural compassion to the point that it fills our thoughts, speech and action every minute of every day. This can start with the institution of a special day, World Compassion in Action Organisation, where we encourage one another to live out our natural compassion and to reduce actions that are harmful to others.

We have chosen the 6th of July for this occasion as it is His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s birthday. His life has been an example of living compassion that we would others to emulate.
