Compassion: Defined


“Compassion can be roughly defined in terms of a state of mind that is nonviolent, nonharming, and nonaggressive. It is a mental attitude based on the wish for others to be free of their suffering and is associated with a sense of commitment, responsibility, and respect towards the other.”    – Dalai Lama, as cited by Howard C. Cutler, M.D. pg. 114
