Grasping Heaven- Mystery of Emptiness & Love

Even the heaven realms, the pure realms and holy places of pilgrimage that practitioners look to as the excellent support for their craving and grasping, are empty of essence. Devotees of this sort are looking for a special kind of spiritual good within ordinary stability, one that will support them in their life process and make them feel secure and virtuous. However, the dynamic they seek from these holy realms cannot fully satisfy them because these realms do not possess the qualities that the devotee ascribes to them in a solidified spiritual manner. excerpt from Mystery of Emptiness & Love http://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Emptiness-Love-Geshe-Rinpoche/dp/0692003940/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1246398169&sr=1-1 or Kindle edition
