Eugene | How to Be Happy

We’ll learn how to be happy all the time through meditation following the advice of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in the Mirror of Dharma With Additions.

“The first point we should think about is, ‘Why do we need to practice Buddha’s teachings?’ The answer is very simple. It is because we want to be happy all the time, and we can fulfil this wish only by putting Buddha’s teachings into practice. We therefore need to practice Buddha’s teachings, Dharma, sincerely and purely.

Although we normally want to be happy all the time, even during sleep, we do not know how to do this. If someone were to ask us how to do this, we would have no clear answer. Do you have a clear answer? Some people may say, ‘I will be happy all the time if I become wealthy, enjoy a good reputation and have the opportunity of a relationship with the person I desire.’ I am very sorry, but this is not true! We can see that people who have all these things also experience great unhappiness and many problems. Many wealthy people and those in high positions experience great suffering and many dangers. We see and hear news about such things all the time.”
