Why Buddhahood?

BuddhahoodEven if you are born into the most affluent circumstances, or enjoy a spectacular marriage, that is the envy of others, there is no guarantee that you will be happy.

Happiness does not depend on wealth or personal appearance, nor does it hinge on fame or recognition. If your heart is empty, you cannot build genuine happiness.

There is an expansive life-state of profound, secure happiness that transcends any material or social advantage, it is called the life state of Buddhahood.

This is why we chant, it is why we strive daily to grow ever nearer to that life-state. This is not a selfish or exclusive goal, as we learn the Wisdom, Courage and Compassion needed to achieve our aim, we willingly take our family, friends and colleagues along with us.
