What is happiness and how can we find a reliable source of happiness? We tend to believe that we need things such as success, praise, status, looks, material possessions and so forth to be happy. Although we can definitely enjoy all of these, they cannot provide us with the pure lasting happiness we seek.
Buddha explains that the source of happiness is inner peace, and there are simple attitudes that bring inner peace, and we can all learn to cultivate these. On this course we will explore meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind. By carrying these with mindfulness into our day, we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way.
