Documenting Compassion : A Multi-faith Narrative


This is an ongoing project to capture moments of love and compassion in our everyday lives.
Participants are encouraged to share their memories of when they experienced acts of compassion.




Have you come across compassion in the face of cruelty? In other words, have you received compassion overcoming the barriers of apathy and callousness? More importantly, have you been able to genuinely feel and display compassion to someone despite strong feelings of hurt against her/ him? Could you narrate a real life incident?

Do you think that compassion in this instance was inspired by a ‘religious’ feeling or duty? How does religion help engender compassion? Does religion at all help engender it? Can ‘irreligious’ people be compassionate at all?
