Dp.A.193 is short for what?

"Compassion is that which makes the heart of the good move at the pain of others. It crushes and destroys the pain of others. Thus, it is called compassion. It is called compassion because it shelters and embraces the distressed. - Dp.A.193"

Anyone know if this is Dhammapada-atthakatha (Commentary to the Dhammapada)? and if this compassion is karuna?

I'm pretty sure that yes... that is what is being referred to.

Metta,

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)
