All the happiness there is in the world arises from wishing others to be happy. All the suffering there is in the world arises from wishing ourself to be happy. For happiness, cherish others and always remind yourself when meeting others: "This person is important and their happiness matters".
Generating the four immeasurables May everyone be happy, May everyone be free from misery, May no one ever be separated from their happiness, May everyone have equanimity, free from hatred and attachment.
"Bowing is a very important practice for diminishing our arrogance and egotism. It is not to demonstrate complete surrender to Buddha, but to help get rid of our own selfishness." ~ Shunryu Suzuki Roshi
