“Love is not selective, desire is selective. In love there are no strangers. When the centre of selfishness is no longer, all desires for pleasure and fear of pain cease; one is no longer interested in being happy; beyond happiness there is pure intensity, inexhaustible energy, the ecstasy of giving from a perennial source.”

A minimal set of postings dealing with Vajrayana and Dzogchen approaches to desire and dealing with classification of Mahayana as seen from Vajrayana and Dzogchen have been moved here in the Tibetan Buddhist forum.
