Benevolence or compassion is empathising with the sufferings of others and within one’s means rendering help unconditionally. Generous giving is not only meant for the rich but anyone can give true love and concern. The most depressing feeling one has may be “all of them have family but not me”. Hence, practitioners of the bodhisattva way learn to treat all sentient beings in the following ways. All the elderly are my parents and I should respect them. All those around my age group are my fellow siblings and I should respectfully love them. All those younger than me are my children and I should care for them. This is the noblest, truest, kindest and most beautiful love in human nature.
