Once we have a firm practice of compassion

om_mani_padme_humvvOnce we have a firm practice of compassion, our state of mind becomes stronger, which leads to inner peace, giving rise to self-confidence, which reduces fear.

This makes for constructive members of the community.

Self-centeredness, on the other hand, leads to distance, suspicion, mistrust, and loneliness, with unhappiness as the result.”

— Insight from the Dalai Lama
