The only thing that will bring happiness is affection and warmheartedness. This really brings inner strength and self-confidence, reduces fear, develops trust, and trust brings friendship. We are social animals, and cooperation is necessary for our survival, but cooperation is entirely based on trust. When there is trust, people are brought together—whole nations are brought together.

Someone may be rich and powerful, but without friends they trust they’ll never be happy. Someone else may be poor, but surrounded by friends they trust they’ll always be happy. Showing concern for others is the best way to make friends and fulfil our own interests. We are social animals; we need to be warm-hearted and to take care of others. And to do that we need to remember what we have in common as human beings.

The Book of Joy chronicles a conversation with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu about joy, and spreads the underlying message that to experience joy, you must bring joy to others. #sharethejoy

On a simple human level we are all equal. The first of my personal commitments is to work to increase human happiness by encouraging the cultivation of inner values and a sense of concern for others’ well being. These are the key factors to make us happy whether we are religious or not.

To have an idea what genuine human compassion is like, look at children. Naturally open and honest, they don't care about other children’s background, what their religion or their nationalities are, so long as they smile and play together. It’s as we grow older that the trouble begins—we only smile to get what we want. But when we see other human beings as being like us and show concern - that's genuine compassion.

The fear and unease that arise from mistrust and suspicion, seeing other people in terms of “us” and “them”, is not easily overcome by just closing your eyes or saying a prayer. It’s real concern for others that breeds trust and leads to friendship and a sense of security. Inner peace, a practical source of peace and confidence, depends on warm-heartedness and a concern for others’ well being.

Story
Introduction
Three Main Commitments of His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Firstly, on the level of a human being, His Holiness’ first commitment is the promotion of human values such as compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline. All human beings are the same. We all want happiness and do not want suffering. Even people who do not believe in religion recognize the importance of these human values in making their life happier. His Holiness refers to these human values as secular ethics. He remains committed to talk about the importance of these human values and shares them with everyone he meets.

Secondly, on the level of a religious practitioner, His Holiness’ second commitment is the promotion of religious harmony and understanding among the world’s major religious traditions. Despite philosophical differences, all major world religions have the same potential to create good human beings. It is therefore important for all religious traditions to respect one another and recognize the value of each other’s respective traditions. As far as one truth, one religion is concerned, this is relevant on an individual level. However, for the community at large, several truths, several religions are necessary.

Thirdly, His Holiness is a Tibetan and carries the name of the ‘Dalai Lama’. Tibetans place their trust in him. Therefore, his third commitment is to the Tibetan issue. His Holiness’ has a responsibility to act as the free spokesperson of the Tibetans in their struggle for justice. As far as this third commitment is concerned, it will cease to exist once a mutually beneficial solution is reached between the Tibetans and Chinese.

However, His Holiness will carry on with the first two commitments till his last breath.
