One can ask why it is good to have altruism? Because it is good for you, for others and for entire humanity. Altruism or helping others in selfless manner is shown even by other animals, birds and insects. It is more crucial for human beings. It is commonly said that man is a social animal.We live in inter-connected and inter-dependent environment. We have needs and states which requires support of others. If we all believe in only self satisfaction, we all will remain unsatisfied and unfulfilled. This will lead to frustration and negativity leading to every possible evil. Many people are in a state in which they need big help and support. Thus is the need of people to extend helping hand without any selfish interest or ulterior motive. This can help in saving humanity from suffering and in improving quality of life. The overall growth in turn will help world in becoming a happier place and more developed too. Altruism is not only for helping others, it gives immense satisfaction and sense of purpose and meaningfulness to the person. Great people like Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King have lived an altruistic life helping millions during their lifetime and still inspiring and helping.

Some people have altruism as inherent trait. Others can develop it. One of the most important way to develop it is by sensitizing people towards pain and suffering of others. This should start early in childhood. Meditation and Mindfulness can also help in developing altruism. Reading about great altruistic leaders is another way. NGO's are actively doing altruistic works worldwide. Events can be organized to involve people in such activities.

Humanity must choose - rise together through altruism or get destroyed through selfishness.
