All the Happiness in the World

All the happiness there is in this world

Comes from wishing others to be happy.

All suffering there is in this world

Comes from wishing myself to be happy.

What need is there to say more?

The childish work for their own benefit,

The Mighty Ones work for the benefit of others.

Just look at the difference between them!

Excerpt From Bodhicharyavatara: “Cherishing Others: The Heart of Dharma” by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
