Cultivating a Sense of Interconnectedness: Rejoicing and Sharing Merit

Dr. Monica Gulati

When we live identified with a separate self, this ‘little me’, most often we live with a sense of not feeling oneness or interconnectedness with others around. We are shut in our own little cage, and often feel alienated from the rest of the world.
