By Thupten Jinpa.

The Dalai Lama got good at compassion because he worked at it. The seed of compassion is present in all of us.

At the heart of altruism lies the perception of a shared humanity.

Compassion gets us out of our usual head full of disappointments, regrets, and worries about ourselves and focused on something bigger.

It’s a paradox of compassion that we ourselves are one of its greatest beneficiaries. Compassion makes us happier.
