Buddhism Day by Day: Concerned Only for our own Happiness is Egoism

“To be concerned only with one’s own happiness is egoism. To claim you care only about the happiness pf others is hypocrisy. Genuine happiness is becoming happy together with others. Josei Toda said, ‘ Just becoming happy oneself — there’s nothing difficult to that. It’s easy. Helping others becoming happy is the foundation of or faith.”
