Speaking on the Wisdom of Compassion at the Anniversary Event of a Liver Transplant Program
November 30th 2013, New Delhi, India:
I follow the practical advice of the eighth century Indian Buddhist master, Shantideva, who said that when you face trouble, you should think about it. If it can be solved, there’s no need to worry, and if it can’t be solved, worry is of no use.

That luminous part of you that exists beyond personality, your soul, if you will, is as bright and shining as any that has ever been, bright as Shakespeare’s, bright as Gandhi’s, and bright as Mother Teresa’s. Clear away everything that keeps you separate from this secret luminous place. Believe it exists, come to know it better, nurture it, share its fruits tirelessly.
- George Saunders
