Random quote of the day:


“In Buddhism, one is usually taught that desire is the root of suffering….When one delves more deeply, it actually turns out that the Sanskrit word tanha should be translated as “thirst” rather than “desire” and that the root of suffering is not so much that we crave certain things as that we so strongly identify with and obsess over these cravings.”

—Noelle Oxenhandler, The Wishing Year
