The Tibetan lama Chögyam Trungpa recommended you hesitate 10,000 times before offering assistance to others. Almost all offer of help stems from our ego. Almost all such help is likely to cause damage, since it does not flow from a realistic assessment of the needs of the other person.
As Alan Watts aptly told: “You are drowning, let me help you,” said the monkey kindly to the fish, lifting it gently out of the water onto a branch.”
The Dalai Lama is known for telling western backpackers who ask to convert to Buddhism that they have their own religions at home, that there are many religions, probably reflecting the needs of the people in the regions where they were invented. He recommends people to adopt their local religion.
Offering to convert people to any religion is based on the belief that your beliefs are somehow more true than others’ beliefs. But ultimately they are all beliefs, reflecting the way people think and no more.
By respecting others’ beliefs, we strengthen our own compassion which seems to be at least the nominal basis for most religions.
