    Thought of the week

    Beings long to free themselves from misery, But misery itself they race to catch. They long for joy, but in their ignorance, Destroy it, as they would a hated enemy.
    SHANTIDEVA (685-763)
    Shantideva,The Way of the Bodhisattva: A Translation of the Bodhicharyavatara Chapter I, v 28, translation by the Padmakara Translation Group, 1997.
