The Compassionate Initiative – Vision
Imagining, understanding and promoting a more compassionate world. The Compassion Initiative envisions a coming of the “Age of Compassion”. In so many ways, the future of our species will rely on our ability to overcome the apparent barriers of gender, social status, religion, race and culture, and cultivate compassion as a basis for living and working together, creating cooperation throughout the world, and caring for one another, taking steps to relieve suffering where ever it may be found.
Compassion, in which all ethics must take root,
can only attain its full breadth and depth
if it embraces all living creatures and does not limit itself to mankind.
