Summary of Last Week's Dharma Talk — Pursuit of Happiness

September 21, 2022

by dogo

It is the desire for happiness, or at least an end to our suffering, that motivates us to take up practice, but if we continue a pursuit of personal happiness, it leads us further and further away from happiness.

When happiness arises, it is when our practice is not about making ourself happy, but rather being less of an arsehole.

We vow to save all beings, which begins from saving all beings, including you, from ourself.
