To anyone who has ever shown me compassion, this book is for you. Your sympathy, concern and loving acts have made me the person I am today.

INTRODUCTION Compassion is not just empathy or altruism but a special combination of the two: the ability to share and understand others? feelings coupled with a genuine desire to help ease any pain they are enduring. Recent research has shown that compassion can bring a wide range of bene'ts to those who practise it. For example, compassionate people tend to feel less stressed, experience less anger and have a greater sense of overall wellbeing. They may even have more resilient immune systems. With greater empathy and understanding, and a desire to focus on more than just their own troubles, compassionate people experience the world as a more open-minded and inspired place. This book, with its uplifting quotes about compassion and thoughtprovoking reflections and a'rmations, will help you to live a happier, more loving and more ful'lled life.

COMPASSION noun | com'pas'sion 1. The sympathetic awareness of another's distress paired with a desire to alleviate it 2. The desire to commiserate with and help those who are going through di'cult times

If you want others to be happy , practise compassion. If you want to be happy, practise compassion. Tenzin Gyatso 14th Dalai Lama (b. 1935)


It is important to o'er compassion ? a form of unconditional love and acceptance ? to yourself, as well as to others. When you've made a mistake, console yourself with kind, loving words, just as you would your friends, to help you let go of any negative feelings and move on.
