"We think happiness is what we get when attachment gets what it wants. Buddha says happiness is what we get when we give up attachment."
From Ven. Robina, Sep 26, 2017:
"With Sangye-la, Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s brother, who runs Lawudo Gompa, in the Kopan Monastery cafe, discussing next year’s trek, in March - “Bring 100 people!” he joked, when I told him that we’ve already got more than half our planned group of 32 people booked up. As usual I’m trying to get fit by walking up and down the 99 steps - I counted! - between the gompa and my room several time a day."
