Parashat Emor, (Leviticus 23:33-23-44), 5/2/14

“And you shall take for yourselves on the first day, the fruit of the hadar tree, date palm fronds, a branch of a braided tree, and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for a seven day period.” —Leviticus 23:40

I wonder about my kids not growing up with religion. I've been thinking today about how, in Buddhism, wisdom and compassion are one. Rational thought might drive wisdom, at least in the West. But not compassion. Do you need religion to find compassion? The roots are in experience. If we see the condition we'll know the needs. Right?
