Why?

Related imageMental afflictions are frail and conquerable with the eye of wisdom.

Mental afflictions do not exist in sense objects, nor in the sense faculties, nor in the space between, nor anywhere else. Then where do they exist and agitate the whole world? This is an illusion only.

Liberate your fearing heart and cultivate perseverance for the sake of wisdom. Why would you torture yourself for no reason?

—Shantideva
