Words of Wisdom & Compassion

Daily quote from the collected works of Venerable Geshe-la

Happiness and suffering are feelings - parts of our mind - and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we really want to be truly happy and free from suffering we must improve our understanding of the mind.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche,
How to understand the mind
