It may seem that unhappiness, frustration and depression are a natural part of our life – something that we have no control over and that we have to experience.

This is not true however – we can develop and grow our own peaceful and positive states of mind, which we can rely on as a source of happiness.

Through learning a simple breathing meditation we can reduce the unnecessary, negative thoughts we have, and by developing genuine love for others we can lift our mind and be more positive in our everyday life.

 

We want to be happy all the time, even during sleep. How can we do this?

We can do this through training in meditation because meditation makes our mind peaceful, and when our mind is peaceful we are happy all the time, even if our external conditions are poor.

On the other hand, when our mind is not peaceful we are not happy, even if our external conditions are excellent. We can understand this through our own experience.’

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Without inner peace, there is no real happiness at all.
The more we control our mind, the more our inner peace increases and the happier we become.
Therefore, the real method to make ourself happy is to control our own mind.
By controlling our mind – in particular, our anger, our attachment and especially our self-grasping – all of our problems will disappear.
We shall experience deep inner peace and be happy all the time.
Problems, suffering and unhappiness do not exist outside the mind; they are feelings and thus part of our mind.
Therefore, it is only by controlling our mind that we can permanently stop our problems and make ourself and others truly happy.
