Q: How do I encourage someone going through something I haven’t experienced myself?
A: Ultimately, what’s most important is our desire to see that person become happy and to continually support them until they overcome their situation, When we do so, we can experience as much joy as if we had overcome that problem ourselves. And this becomes part of our own lives as well as fuel for encouraging yet even more people. This is how we become emissaries of the Buddha and true champions of faith.
