Old friend 旧友

"I try to treat whoever I meet as an old friend. This gives me a genuine feeling of happiness."
(From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's tweet on November 11, 2013)

私は会う人誰でも、旧友としてもてなすようにしています。そうすると真の幸福感を味わえます。 (超訳)

This is the best practice of compassion. It sounds easy but is very difficult to do due to delusions through mental projections created by our attachment and anger.(My commentary)
