Compassion is a mind wishing that sentient beings be free from suffering, and loving-kindness is a mind wishing they meet with happiness. Loving-kindness induces compassion, and compassion induces the special attitude. The special attitude here means that you not only mentally think how good it would be if sentient beings were free from suffering, but you voluntarily take responsibility for actually engaging in the work of delivering sentient beings to the state of liberation and helping them remove their suffering.
H. H. the Dalai Lama
from The Stages of Meditation
