We do not practice Dharma just for the sake of common attainments such as health, long life, and so on, but rather for the reason stated in our prayer to the lineage gurus:

We beg You, grant blessings and siddhis
To attain our innate Buddhahood!

This is our actual desired objective.


From “Precious Teachings,” by Khenpo Karten Rinpoche, page 23, “Homage to Buddha Amitabha!”
