The choice is clear ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Through the unfailing process of cause and effect, our acts, our words and our thoughts determine the happiness or the suffering that we will later experience. If the balance of the scale of our acts leans to the negative side, we will suffer in the lower states of existence of samsara. If it leans towards the positive, we will be able to liberate ourselves from samsara and attain Buddhahoood in a single lifetime. The choice is clear: avoid the causes of sorrow and thus be sure of happiness.
