Other living beings are extremely important! Without others, there is no path to enlightenment, no happiness, no freedom at all. When we do positive deeds for other beings, we are actually gaining more than what we give. Other beings are the source of our own enlightenment, a wish-fulfilling jewel, especially if you are on the path to enlightenment: they are something to protect and something to cherish.
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
