We must be aware that, as far as any of the worldly dharmas are concerned—whether money, fame, status or people—as long as there is attachment, they will give us a great deal of suffering. The more intense the attachment, the greater the pain they will give us; the pain may even go beyond the happiness that thing originally brought us. This is certain. To stop the suffering in this world, we should, first and foremost, abandon our attachment.
