Compassion, Karunaa in Sanskrit, is one of the four sentiments in Chapter 1, Sutra 33 of “Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.” Also known as Brahma-Vihaaras they are Maitrii (amity, love), Karunaa (compassion), Muditaa (joyfulness), Upekshaa (indifference, equanimity). Given the current level of global human suffering , Karunaa seems an appropriate sentiment to focus on. The havan that will follow the discussion will be an invocation of Enlightened Compassion as personified by Divine Mother Tara.
