Compassion Cannot Choose contains Sadhguru’s interactions with people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHAs). Sadhguru speaks words of comfort, hope and inspiration, and also words of deeper understanding and clarity about society. The booklet also contains the personal stories narrated by several PLHAs giving a human face to the oft-neglected section of society that comprises HIV patients.
