More from neuroscience (the stories just seem to be everywhere, in this case from Scientific American):

New research from the University of Wisconsin-Madison finds that we can acquire a greater capacity for compassion through meditation training, in much the same way as athletes or musicians train to improve their skill.

Again we find a modern scientific explanation to a martial arts cliche about training to learn not to fight, for spirituality, for “oneness” and so on.
