Normally we seek happiness outside ourself. We try to obtain better material conditions, a better job, higher social status and so forth; but no matter how successful we are in improving our external situation, we still experience many problems and much dissatisfaction. We never experience pure, lasting happiness.
This shows that we should not seek happiness outside ourself, but instead establish it within by purifying and controlling our mind through sincere spiritual practice.Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
