The real reason for unhappiness

Self-cherishing is a state of mind that can be incredibly detrimental to our overall well-being. Despite this fact, it can be tricky to recognize as it often disguises itself as a friend. Gen Dornying offers valuable insight into the true nature of this mindset and helps us understand how it can lead us down the path of suffering. By exploring our relationship with self-cherishing, we can gain a better understanding of how it affects us and take steps towards a happier, healthier mindset. This extract is taken from a talk given by Gen Kelsang Dornying at KMC Edinburgh, Scotland It is based on the book The New Eight Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
