Empathy-Related Emotional Responses, Altruism, and Their Socialization
In the field of psychology, one is always interested in the factors that stir up different emotional behavior, such as anger, jealousy, and compassion. Currents events and disasters for instance, compel a person to feel a certain level of compassion towards other citizens of the world, urging them to donate or engage in charitable events. This chapter aims to discover the sentiments behind humanitarian efforts behind the background of compassion. This chapter suggests however, that politics and humanitarian efforts can become conflicts if not handled properly, as politics may cause personal intentions to waver and an individual may become focused on personal intentions. Discussions are taken from most of the Dalai Lama's teachings and doctrines, taking into account the purity in mind when executing compassion.
