Concept of a call to compassion
Dalai Lama: 14th Dalai Lama
As we do so, we will discover that ultimately there is no sharp distinction between our interests and the interests of others. All want and appreciate the love, patience, truth, justice and peace. And these are all both inside and the fruits of compassion. In helping others, we offer our own happiness because happiness is not, ourselves, an end in itself. Rather it is a by-product of the actions which we take for the benefit of others. Thus, in serving others we serve ourselves. Why I sometimes ask for compassion "rational egoism". It involves compassion exercise moderation and discipline our negative thoughts and emotions by a sense of responsibility towards others. However along with kindness, generosity, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, humility, and so on, are the same things that happiness is in. Compassion makes us happy!
