How to move from selfishness to happiness

Why is it that we ordinarily seek happiness through selfishness? Just looking at oneself and forgetting how one's actions affect others? It's not like one doesn't want to consider others, but the general feeling is that there may not be enough capacity to consider everyone. It's like you're dealing ...

Change "your post" to "my post"

Nothing major, but changing "your posts" to "my posts" in Quick links will make things a bit less confusing :)

Re: Favorite Secular Quotes

Not my favorite quote, but something that's been stuck in my mind for years & makes me wonder: whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them? Here's another one by Shakespeare: The quality of mercy is not strained, It droppeth as the gent...

Re: Auspicious birdhouse

Okay, so here are a couple of photographs. Please don't laugh, it's my first time :) Unfortunately the job was a bit rushed. It wasn't too hard to engrave the letters with a scalpel. Despite tracing pencil-drawn letters, the thickness of lines was not always easy to control. Because of this, I unint...

Re: Auspicious birdhouse

Are you sure birds like paint? I actually engraved the mantras in wood....after I painted it :). I'm not sure if birds like paint. I don't see why they wouldn't like it. I guess we'll just put them up and check. Sorry for not having posted the pictures yet. I wanted to work on the houses a little m...

Auspicious birdhouse

My dad bought little birdhouses & I would like to paint stuff on them. Any ideas on how to make them auspicious? I was thinking of including a Chenrezig mantra by the entrance, but it is quite long, so I'm not sure if this is a good idea. Would OM be enough? The endless knot....a pair of fish (perha...

Re: How to eliminate self-cherishing?

SeekerNo1000003, I’m not sure I understand what you’re trying to get at. It seems like you’re asking whether there’s any way to overcome self-cherishing other than a deep realization of dependent arising. But maybe you're asking how to go about overcoming self-cherishing. I think that working on ou...

Please pray for Mallory, a girl I knew years ago, who passed away this Saturday in a group home. She had cerebral palsy and other health problems. She didn't speak & had a limited understanding of what was going on around her. I used to play a game with her, asking her to close and open her eyes & s...

Re: How to eliminate self-cherishing?

Okay, thank you for the replies. How about this verse from Lama Chopa: Please bless me to perceive that this chronic disease of cherishing myself is the cause giving rise to my unsought suffering.
