Bob Thurman marries Buddhism and technology on this short but very moving talk at TED.

Key quote: "The key to compassion is fun."

Thanks for sharing this perspective of Bob Thurman with us here @zaadz - SO appropriately sponsored by BMW - particularly in the context of a conscious capitalist approach to ..changing the world.

The key to compassion IS fun & BONO's TED talk of 2006 IS equally testament to THAT particularly in the context of Martin's Penny-ON One Love initiative.

When each of these three elements of vision–concern for excellence, for people and for the

wider environment–are present, business is transformed from a tool for making profits into

a creative, humane experiment for improving life.

ABSOLUTE compassion, however, can only BE manifest in the ONE who does “what needs to BE DONE with humility” - as a servant to HOMO SAPIENS who would “deem” to tell the ONE “What to DO”
