The reason you are wandering in samsara ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Even when you find yourself in the best of situations, you never feel it is enough. You always want more. You give little thought to others wishes and desires, and only want favorable circumstances for yourself. If you do the slightest favor for someone, you feel you have done something quite extraordinary. That you are so preoccupied with your own happiness and welfare, and neglect the welfare and happiness of others, is the reason you are wandering in samsara.
