why should we practice this Mahayana path

So the question, what is there in it for us, why should we practice this Mahayana path. Very simple answer. Don’t we all want to be happy? Happiness is the key. Don’t we all want to live happily forever. Happiness is what we want, happiness is what we are looking for. Happiness is what we are struggling for. Everything what we do in this world, science, economy, politic, philosophy, everything, one way or another it is supposedly a means to achieve that happiness. Individual happiness and happiness for all. Scientists are busy, politicians are busy, all they claim that they are trying to find the root of a certain cure. Buddhist not different actually, Buddhist are not exception. Yes, to begin with, yes the follower of the buddhadharma, they must enter to the Dharma looking for happiness, even so I was telling you that that is not the aim. They must come with a sense of tiredness and exhaustion towards the samsaric suffering. The same thing over and over and over. We have done this, been there, done that, sense of exhaustion towards all this. Samsaric life. So we are trying to look for long lasting if not for ever happiness.
