ATTACHMENT

“Attachment is the mind stuck to an object.”
Lama Zopa Rinpoche, The Door to Satisfaction

“As human beings we all want to be happy and free
from misery… we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as
anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a
sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.”
Dalai Lama

“Don’t get stuck on attachment”
