Attitudes 態度

"Not only is your own happiness and welfare related to others, but the more you help them, the happier you will be."
(From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's tweet on November 14, 2013)

あなた自身の幸福か、他人の幸福かという二者択一ではなく、他人を助ければ助けるほど、あなた自身もより幸福になるでしょう。」  (超訳)

The important point is that our altruistic attitudes will make us happy. Altruistic attitudes means the care for the happiness of others. And self-centered attitudes which cause sufferings are opposite to altruistic attitudes. This message has nothing to do with rich or poor directly.(My commentary)
