    The world found him a man overjoyed and happy to be reunited with his family and he said that prayers and religion got him through those seven years Accepting another's suffering brings that person a sense of connectedness and gives us a willingness to reach out for others. If people feel there is no need to develop compassion then it's because they are being blocked by "ignorance and shortsightedness" By opening oneself to the world around us, it creates the opportunity to form special bonds with someone new, or build upon a relationship one may already have.

    Clearly kindred spirits, the Dalai Lama has been known to swipe the Archbishop's signature sailing cap right off his head, and Desmond Tutu, in turn, to demand recompense for every compliment he tenders. The Dalai Lama does not just refer to caring for each other; he also finds relationships very important and differentiates them in two ways. Try not to "want. Their interlocutor, Douglas Abrams, has some difficulty with this development as he places the positions in opposition. We find that between the past and the future there is an extremely thin line—something that cannot really withstand analysis. Once you have pure and sincere motives all the rest follows.

    For example, the Hui Muslim community in China has a lot of problems and suffering. The Dalai Lama states that he believes it is a good idea to prepare yourself ahead of time for the kinds of suffering you might encounter, because sometime in life you are going to experience some type of suffering, so if you prepare yourself you will know what to expect. Guilt is incompatible with our thinking as you are part of an action but not fully responsible for it. Lama says that all religions can make an effective contribution for the benefit of humanity; they are designed to make the individual a happier person and the world a better place and we should respect them
