Source of Self-confidence 自信の源

"It’s in our interest to take care of others. Self-centredness is opposed to basic human nature. In our own interest as human beings we need to pay attention to our inner values. Sometimes people think compassion is only of help to others, while we get no benefit. This is a mistake. When you concern yourself with others, you naturally develop a sense of self-confidence. To help others takes courage and inner strength." (From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's facebook on September 3, 2013)


Practice of compassion is the source of self-confidence. The value driver of practice of compassion is the wisdom of interdependence.
(My commentary)
