Prison Escapee

Photograph by Phil Borges: The woman is Tamdin, 69 years old, she was imprisoned in 1987 but recently escaped, walking 35 days across the Himalayas to seek an audience with the Dalai Lama.
"Our self-centeredness,
our distinctive attachment to the feeling
of an independent "I" works to inhibit
our compassion.

True compassion can only develop
and grow as such self-grasping is reduced
and eventually eliminated."
