Screen Shot 2012-05-29 at 6.43.06 AMGreat wisdom and compassion are the chief qualities of a Buddha. Even in worldly terms, the more intelligent and knowledgeable a person is, the more the person commands respect.

Similarly, the more compassionate, kind, and gentle a person, the more he or she should be respected.

So if you are able to develop intelligence and altruism to their fullest extent, then you are truly admirable and deserve to be respected.
