When asked, "what is the primary impulse in human beings?" His Holiness The Dalai Lama replied, "we care". We don't have to cultivate it. It's already there. Caring is our deepest, most fundamental attribute. We turn towards each other through caring. When we stop caring we turn away or against each other. This is also the essence of all the great religious traditions. To remind us of our true nature. We are sentient beings, who care.
