Building Happiness in Samsara via Samsaraic means is like building a house on sand. Good comic strip. :smile:

_________________
Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.

Not to do a deep analysis on a comic strip, but what if the vase she has at the end represents "the Path"?

Vasubhandu writes:

Conditioned dharmas, with the exception of the Path, are impure

So perhaps the comic is not as depressing.

:coffee: Hey, it's slow at work right now so I have the time to think of these things. :lol:
