Everyone Wants Happiness

One of the Dalai Lama’s favorite sayings is

We want happiness. We do not want suffering. Everyone wants happiness and avoid suffering…

Inner peace is the ultimate source of happiness!

This is true and valid for all sentient beings.

This short clip is from the movie, “Dalai Lama Renaissance.” I think the scene was shot during a Mind and Life Institute conference.

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh says something very similar. He says, “We have everything we need to be happy in the present moment.”

Recognizing this can help you develop compassion for others.

Please share this insight with your family and friends.
