How would you explain the principle of compassion to a child?

  1. As His Holiness the Dalai Lama would say:
    Compassion,”is the realization that even our own enemy is motivated by the quest for happiness. We must recognize that all beings want the same thing we want.”

    When we put ourselves in the place of others and imagine how our actions are received we gain an understanding of the necessity for compassion.

    Maybe too heavy for someone VERY young.
    What’s the target age group?
