Compassion and Enlightenment

I really enjoy watching Bob Thurman speak on Buddha in this very fun and inspiring TEDTalk. He has such a great attitude and a wonderful ability to get laughs between very serious topics.

I agree with him that TED is like a modern form of enlightenment, bringing together people from all places and fields to understand reality and become more compassionate human beings. I also think we can find happiness when we escape from the "I, Me, Me, Mine" and realize that our own pains and pleasures are too small a theater for our intelligence.
