Event description

Description

“Sufferings are not given to us as a punishment. They all come from our self-cherishing mind, which wishes ourself to be happy while neglecting the happiness of others.”

“The self-cherishing mind is also the basis for experiencing all our suffering and problems.”

“since beginningless time, we have tried to fulfil the wishes of our self-cherishing mind, believing its view to be true. We have put great effort into seeking happiness from external sources, but have nothing to show for it now.”

“When we deeply think that others are important, and that their happiness and freedom are important, we are cherishing others. If we cherish others like this, we shall always have good relationships and live in harmony with others, and our daily life will be peaceful and happy. We can begin this practice with our family, friends and those around us, and then gradually we shall develop and maintain cherishing love for all living beings without exception.” ~from the Book: Modern Buddhism by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

In Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, Shantideva says:

“All the happiness there is in this world Arises from wishing others to be happy”
