Robert Thurman discusses "Compassion". The Buddha taught that to realize enlightenment, a person must have both wisdom and loving kindness. That is to say, one must understand the nature of the suffering from which we wish to free others, and experience deep intimacy and empathy with other beings. It is the foundation of human life in Buddha's view.
