In this interesting video, Venerable Thubten Chodron of Sravasti Abbey talks about the difference between pitying someone and having compassion for them. She felt it was important to make this distinction because when people say that they feel sorry for someone, they often equate it with being compassionate. Not knowing the difference, as she puts it, can ruin seeing one’s own and other’s human capacity and potential.
