Compassion is Understanding

Do not maintain anger or hatred. Learn to penetrate and transform them when they are still seeds in your consciousness. As soon as they arise, turn your attention to your breath in order to see and understand the nature of your anger and hatred and the nature of the persons who have caused your anger and hatred.

--The Sixth Precept of the Buddhist Order of Interbeing, from the book Interbeing, by Thich Nhat Hanh
