Default Learn Compassion by Being Compassionate.

Compassion is an adverb.
The winner of the tennis match feels at the top of the world, strong, full. The empathy he displays to the opponent when he shakes his hand, comes out of fullness, not loss. He is a contributor. We become contributors, and not mere takers, when we sense this fullness, lacking nothing, content, secure. That is the reflection of the Divinity that exists within all of us. Get in touch with the Divinity by acting with compassion.
~ Swami Dayananda Saraswati in a Ted Talk.

"Yoga is a method for restraining the natural turbulence of thoughts, which otherwise impartially prevents all men, of
all lands, from glimpsing their true nature. The goal of yoga science is to calm the mind, that without distortion, it may hear the infallible counsel of the Inner Voice.” - Paramahansa Yogananda

"You should love and bless all, and try to see God in everyone, even the error-stricken. And no matter how hard it seems at times, you must follow the path of Truth, then you will break the bars of fate."- Paramahansa Yogananda

“Knowledge does not come without discrimination. It does not flash suddenly when you are sitting under a tree. The Self/atma is yourself, therefore it cannot flash anymore than it is doing now. Because it is all-pervasive you do not have to “dive deep” to see it. Every perception is self/atma, every thought is atma. The object is atma, the subject is atma. The subject-object connection is also atma. One has to recognize this fact. It is a question of recognizing “what is” and that happens only when the light of the teachings is brought in. That is what the teaching is about. In the light of the teachings, the self-ignorance goes away and along with it all the bondage to the not-self, anatma.”

~ Swami Dayananda Saraswati.
~. Vivekachudamani by Shankara. Verse 49.

If one knows what one’s own nature is, then [what will remain and shine is only] the beginningless, endless and unbroken existence-consciousness-bliss [anadi ananta akhanda sat- chit-ananda].
Note: This verse may also be interpreted to mean, ‘If one knows what one’s own nature is, then (it will be found to be ) the beginningless, endless and unbroken existence-consciousness-bliss’.
~ Michael James translation of Ramana Maharishi’s “Naan Yaar?” Verse 28
