Awakened values 目覚めた価値

"We all have the potential to show others love and affection, but as we progress in our materialistic world, these values tend to remain dormant. We can develop them on the basis of common sense, common experience and scientific findings. The response to the recent tragedy in the Philippines is an example of how such values are awakened; people helped simply because others are suffering and in need of support." (From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's facebook on November 26, 2013)


This is the unconditional love and compassion developed from biological factor love by the tragedy. It's our regret that our spiritual values are hardly developed without these tragedies. We usually put more emphasis on material values like money, power and status than spiritual values.(My commentary)
