buddhas dont suffer
If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

But does HHDL claim to be a Buddha? Did he not suffer when a refugee from Tibet? Has he never suffered over the condition of his fellow Tibetans?

What do you think? Maybe you may want to write to him yourself?
Nothing like getting it straight from him than listening to what he said, what she said...

he doesnt claim to be a buddha, but the tibetan people and some people see him as the manifestation of Chenrezig. im sure he can feel the suffering but that doesnt mean that he suffers.

but yeah, i agree you should write to him yourself or watch more of his teachings and books to understand him better. power of forgiveness might be a book you like.

Not trying to just be clever, but I don't think anyone suffers due to helping others, if anything helping others is something that nullifies suffering.
"Just as a lotus does not grow out of a well-levelled soil but from the mire, in the same way the awakening mind
is not born in the hearts of disciples in whom the moisture of attachment has dried up. It grows instead in the hearts of ordinary sentient beings who possess in full the fetters of bondage." -Se Chilbu Choki Gyaltsen

You don't have to suffer to help others.
If there is a radical inconsistency between your statements and the position you claim to hold,
you are a sock puppet.
Make as many accounts as you want; people can identify your deception with this test.

Suffering happens due to negative karma from previous actions. Helping others generates positive karma which will ripen positively in the future.

If suffering happens in the course of helping others, it's from previous negative karma ripening.

I think, HH The Dalai Lama his insight is not by dual mind percieving others. The help is actually what is called Absolute Bodhichitta or Wisdoms' Compassion.
