About the Series
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! Happiness is a state of mind, and 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.
In this talk, and the ensuing series of talks and meditations, Kadam Morten will guide us in practical methods of training in happiness. He will take us through specific meditation techniques that are designed to help us experience and maintain authentic happiness, and he will explain how we can continue to train in these positive states during our daily activities. Training in these meditations will profoundly influence our conception of our selves and others, and of our purpose in this life. We will discover the relationship between happiness, authentic self-love, and love of others. This in turn will lead to a recognition of our incredible spiritual potential for an ongoing and continuous experience of happiness, and even enlightenment. With this understanding we can learn how to bring this profound happiness into the lives of others.
