Buddhism Day by Day: Buddhist POV; Happiness is a State of Buddhahood in our Lifetime
“What matters is winning in the end; the wins and losses along the way are secondary significance. It’s final victory in life that counts and that is the reason for our Buddhist practice. No matter how powerful or famous or privileged a person might be, Nichiren says, from Buddhist point of view it is all nothing more than a dream, an illusory pleasure; true happiness can only be attained by revealing the state of Buddhahood within your own life.”
