Inspiring Quote

The goal or aspiration of every living being is to experience happiness. There are two kinds of happiness and hence two kinds of goal - temporary and ultimate. Temporary happiness is the happiness that can be experienced by humans and gods; it is the limited happiness that can be experienced while beings remain bound within samsara. Ultimate happiness is the pure, eternal happiness of liberation and full enlightenment.

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso,
Joyful Path of Good Fortune
