Rinpoche is a friendly and understanding teacher of Tibetan
Buddhism, thoroughly trained and deeply committed to a life of
compassionate action. All are welcome to bring their doubts and
hopes, their intelligence and wisdom.
An Intelligent Approach to Happiness
Do you ever think, "If
I had more money I would be happier" or "If I were better
looking or smarter, or more famous or more successful..."
Our habit is to believe that external things or alternative ways
of life will bring happiness or at least, guard against sadness.
Yet a little thought will show that when the mind is unhappy,
wealth, adulation, intelligence or beauty don’t help. From
Howard Hughes, through Elvis to Michael Jackson we see clear
evidence that these kinds of external circumstances cannot
protect us from unhappy states of mind.
The reverse is also true. When we have a happy mind, then a cool
glass of water or the air we breathe can be enough. With a happy
mind, we don’t need anything else.
The question Rinpoche will explore in this talk is, “What truly
gives rise to happy states of mind” The answer does not require
belief but instead, a willingness to apply honest enquiry to all
