Dharma Quote

Even when we are seeking to accomplish our own aims, it is illogical, even in a worldly sense, to disregard the welfare of others. When the text says, ‘when seeking to accomplish one’s own aims, one must not disregard the welfare of others’ it is in relation to not giving up the sense of love and compassion towards others. According to this tradition, in order to fulfil our own aims, which is to achieve the state of enlightenment, we need to develop love and compassion towards others. This point needs to be understood.
