If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
~Dalai Lama ~
Showing compassion should be our way of life. It should be practiced as much as possible. A smile or a kind word are also included in acts of compassion. Compassion requires us to be present to others through mindfulness of their suffering. What we practice daily will soon become a positive habit. Compassion can reduce suffering in others and this contributes to the well being of all, making the world a better place.
The best way to learn how to be compassionate toward others is to be compassionate with yourself. A compassionate lifestyle improves longevity as it serves as a buffer against stress.
