With Gen-la Jampa  

Happiness is a state of mind; like any state of mind, it can be strengthened through training. But to do so we need to know what are the actual causes of happiness. 

According to Buddha, authentic happiness does not depend upon amassing specific external conditions, such as wealth, beauty, status, etc., but rather its main ingredient is inner peace. And meditation is essential for training in inner peace and happiness.

If there was ever a good time to recognize that in order to be happy we need to actively train in happiness, that time is now!
