Compassion arises from an awareness of distress in self and others, an emotional resonance with the distress, and a desire to take action to help alleviate the distress. The benefits of compassion cultivation are profound and numerous, not the least of which is contentment and a sense of joy that may also be infectious to your partner, family members, friends, even co-workers.
