Beginning Here and Now_ Poison of Desire.mp3

Genuine spirituality is the pursuit of peace and lasting happiness, but what are peace and happiness? Upon what are they based, and why do they seem so elusive? These fundamental questions must be answered before the real path to liberation can be entered, thus this lecture explores our pursuit of happiness, the nature of suffering, sensations, pleasure, pain, cyclic existence, and much more.

"Even if you gained the vast wonders of cyclic existence, they would be illusory." - Tsong Khapa, Lam Rim Chen Mo
