Dalai Lama on happiness

  • “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
  • “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”
  • “I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness.”
  • “What unites all beings is their desire for happiness.”
  • “There are two kinds of happiness – the temporary pleasure derived primarily from material comfort alone and another more enduring comfort that results from the thorough transformation and development of the mind. We can see in our own lives that the latter form of happiness is superior because when our mental state is calm and happy, we can easily put up with minor pains and physical discomforts. On the other hand, when our mind is restless and upset, the most comfortable physical facilities do not make us happy.”
  • “Inner peace is the key: if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility…without this inner peace, no matter how comfortable your life is materially, you may still be worried, disturbed, or unhappy because of circumstances.”
