Buddhism Day by Day: The Joy of Heaven is Ephemeral like a Mirage or a Dream

“The joy of heaven is ephemeral like a mirage or a dream. A life spent in pursuit of a mirage is itself a mirage. The purpose of Buddhist practice is to establish an eternally indestructible state of happiness, not a fleeting happiness that perishes like a flower but an internal place of happiness that will last throughout all time.”
