‘Compassion’ is the feeling of suffering of others as our own, with an inner and instinctive drive to end that suffering. This generates energy, and leads to connectedness, hope and positivity.
‘Compassion in Action’ enables us to translate the feeling of compassion into meaningful action to alleviate the suffering of others, through situational, structural and systemic problem-solving.
There is no easy solution to these issues. We need to seriously rethink, redeﬁne, and reconstruct our approach to life and society, as well as our understanding of success. Compassion is key to enable peaceful co-existence, human fraternity and a sustainable future for all.
All humans are born with an inherent capacity for Compassion. A compassionate person's response to the suffering of self and others is instantaneous and instinctive. Compassion is the driving force that steers us from cognizance to compassion in action.
‘Compassion in Action’ enables us to expand our ‘Circles of Compassion’ and helps us reach beyond our immediate circles to all walks of life, including corporates, academia, healthcare and politics, eventually spreading to the entire world.
Expanding our ‘Circles of Compassion’ allows us to truly ‘Globalize Compassion’, as we learn to coexist in peace and harmony with each other and the planet.
Compassion Quotient (CQ) is the measure of an individual’s ability for Compassion. In other words, their capacity to notice, feel, connect with, respond and act to solve one’s own as well as others’ problems. As is the case with Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ), the level of CQ can differ significantly between individuals, depending on a range of factors such as:
CQ can be evaluated and its level can be increased. We are developing a comprehensive framework to measure and increase CQ using a multidisciplinary approach.
