Compassion = Love + Meditation

Buddha has defined compassion as love plus meditation. When your love is not just a desire for the other, when your love is not only a need, when your love is a sharing, when your love is not that of a beggar but an emperor, when your  love is not asking for something in return but is ready only to give – to give for the sheer joy of giving – then add  meditation to it and the pure fragrance is released. That is compassion; compassion is the highest phenomenon.
