“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the candle’s life will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared…”

The Buddha

One’s own happiness to the exclusion of others is not true happiness. We cannot be happy while others are suffering. Seeking happiness for oneself and others is genuine happiness. The original purpose of Buddhism and the profound wish of the Buddha is to help those who are suffering and enable as many people as possible to become happy.

Sharing happiness enriches our lives, strengthens our connections, and inspires joy in others. Sharing both joy and sorrow allows for deeper connections, fosters empathy, and creates a supportive community.
