Sympathy (anukampā or saṅgaha) is the ability to identify with another person’s feelings, state or situation.

Like compassion, sympathy empathizes with others’ pain and distress but it also understands their point of view, is convivial towards them and wants to find commonalities with them.

Thus we may say that sympathy is that place in the heart where love, compassion, sympathetic joy, patience and tolerance meet.
