When the chocolate runs out
Author: Lama Yeshe
Lama Yeshe (1935-1984), a Tibetan lama who followed the Gelugpa tradition, played a very important role in the spread of Mahayana Buddhism in the West. In this book he compares the incessant desire for new pleasures that dominate our existence to the passion for chocolate which, like everything, is destined to end. The comparison with impermanence, however, stimulates us to undertake the search for lasting fulfillment and happiness, available in everyone's mind ... even when the chocolate runs out.
