When receiving the teachings, it is important to have the correct attitude. It is not practising the Dharma properly to listen with the intention of gaining material advantage or reputation.  Neither should our goal be higher rebirth in the next life, nor should we be wishing only for our own liberation from samsara. Instead,  let us listen to the teachings with the determined wish to attain the state of omniscience for the sake of all beings.
— the 14th Dalai Lama
