KARUNA: "loving compassion"

FROM Wordsmith.org

karuna (KUH-roo-na) noun



Loving compassion.



[From Sanskrit karuna (compassion).]



"Once we experience and feel this inter-dependence of all living beings,

we will cease to hurt, humiliate, exploit and kill another. We will want

to free all sentient beings from suffering. This is karuna, compassion,

which in turn gives rise to the responsibility to create happiness and

its causes for all."
