What is Compassion? What is Love? How are They Related?

Compassion is complementary to the quality of love. Just as love is the aspiration for others to be happy and to have all the conditions for happiness, compassion is the heartfelt aspiration for others to be free from suffering and from the conditions of suffering.

We can feel compassion and love for everyone, all the time. They are universal and enduring. Although they may occur in any number of different circumstances, they do not depend on any particular circumstances.
