Teacher: Rodney Smith
Date: 2008-10-07
Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



What inspires you to practice the dharma if it is not the pursuit of happiness? What do you mean when you say, “I am happy?” What conditions must be present for you to make such a statement? Are those conditions subject to change? Can you see a time in the future when they will inevitably change? Are you content to rest your happiness on circumstances? Can your happiness withstand loss? How does your pursuit of happiness change when you realize that life is not reliable? Work with this koan (riddle) all week.
