Compassion is not religious business, it is human business

"Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival."

Compassion brings peace of mind.

"Compassion brings peace of mind. It brings a smile to the face.
Education needs not only to develop our intelligence, but also to support the basic human values of warm-heartedness and compassion. These are not qualities confined to the religious, because we all want peace of mind. And if we remember that others too are human beings like us. we can extend a sense of kindness even towards those we think of as enemies."

- Dalai Lama XIV
