“From giving comes wealth, from discipline comes happiness.” – Nagarjuna
Everyone wants to be happy and no one wants to suffer, but very few people understand what is the real cause of happiness and what is the real cause of suffering. We tend to look for happiness outside ourself, thinking that if we had the right house, the right car, the right job, and the right friends that we like, we would be truly happy. If we wish to protect ourself from suffering we can either try to change external conditions to make them conform to our wishes, or we can change our mind. Until now we have been trying to change the external conditions, but clearly this has not worked. Happiness is a part of the mind that experiences inner peace, or peace of mind, so the real source of happiness must lie within the mind, not in external conditions. This course will help us to create the causes of happiness in our own mind.
