In my opinion the quote means that true happiness lies in helping others, their happiness will make you happy too.
I once had to help a man who had lost his keys. So I took them to the police, and the next day he called me and was very happy.

I fully agree with the quote because, this man has given me a lot of happiness and I think this is the most important reward.
be kind and compassionate to everyone and you will have a life without regrets or remorse.

In my opinion this quote said by Dalai Lama has a great meaning to it. Most just see compassion as another word in this world, when it’s so much more than that. Compassion bring people together, makes the world a better place, and most importantly allows you to connect with others. Compassion is necessary to the human experience because it keep the world emotionally connected.

With compassion, people come closer together. Compassion provides love and without this emotion, humans would be isolated from one another. Love would not be considered love without compassion. It distinguishes a human from being heartless to one who cares for people other than themselves. Being compassionate leads a person away from a path of selfishness and builds strong relationships with others. The following authors did a great job of demonstrating this.

To start with I would like to say that any kind of feeling makes us more humane, compassion is one of them.
We live in a world lacking in compassion. The sad reality of humanity is that the vast majority of people ignore the suffering of others. Many prefer not to see others’ suffering . Witnessing the suffering of another person can provoke fear or sadness . Too often, people are careless.

We often learn compassion only after we have suffered ourselves perhaps experiencing sickness, accident, illness, death of a loved one, , bad luck….
But what we have to remember is that without it, we would descend into a state of darkness.
The Dalai Lama stated it best: “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”

As a conclusion I would say that that humankind needs compassion. It is my view that compassion must be learned.

Dalai Lama
Dalai Lama is a spiritual guide for Buddhists, a teacher. He gave spiritual teachings: one person’s happiness is the happiness of the whole world, happiness is not something ready-made, it comes from our actions. The main purpose of life is to help others and not to harm them. We will explain the Dalai Lama’s quote if you want others to be happy, practice compassion, if you want to be happy, practice compassion”. it means that we have to suffer together with people who need help, as they do with us, so we can all be completely happy

The Dalai Lama’s quote

Personal opinion
We think that we need to help each other especially with family and friends.

The Dalai Lama is the union of the Tibetan words “Dalai”, which means “ocean” and the word “Lama”, which means “master”. He’s the most important person in the Buddhism religion. We will speak about his quote that talks about happiness and compassion.


Firstly, we have to talk about compassion and kindness.
Compassion is “experiencing feelings of loving kindness toward another person’s affliction.” It’s related to, but a little different from empathy, which we can define as “feeling with someone, that is, sharing the other person’s emotion.” We can consider compassion as the key to coping. The compassionate tend to have deeper connections with others and more friends. They are more forgiving and have a stronger sense of life purpose. Many studies have shown these results.
Compassion also has direct personal benefit. The compassionate tend to be happier, healthier, more self-confident, less self-critical, and more resilient.
Instead, the dictionaries usually defines kindness as “The quality of being kind.” it can feel a bit disappointing because it doesn’t seem to do the word “kindness” justice.
Perhaps partly due to its brevity, the above kindness definition fails to convey kindness’ immensity. In addition, it creates the follow-up question of “well, then, what is the definition of kind?”
Another Way To Define Kindness
It isn’t easy to define something as significant as kindness, so it’s understandable different people may define kindness in different ways.
Here’s one way to define kindness:
Kindness is the sincere and voluntary use of one’s time, talent, and resources to better the lives of others, one’s own life, and the world through genuine acts of love, compassion, generosity, and service.
Secondly, we want to say our idea about this quote
“For me is a right thing because in my life, I had difficulties and my friends and my family helped me, so practise compassion”
“I think the Dalai lama Said a good thing, why shouldn’t you be compassionate? We have to help everyone who is in difficulty because they can help me too”
“This quote for me is true because if you practise compassion, you can understand what he or she is feeling.”
