3. Desire: why doesn’t it help you?
A large part of our daily activities are focused on fulfilling our desires. We want to have a healthy life, a happy family, a new car, to travel on vacation, to be recognized in our profession etc.
The search to fulfill our desires ends up defining our priorities, shaping our lifestyle and is often used to justify actions that harm others. But the truth is that we do not understand the real consequences of our actions.
Is satisfying our desires really the way to happiness?
In this teaching, Lama Tsering presents reflections on desire from the Buddhist perspective, helping us to look more wisely at what actually produces lasting happiness in our lives.
