What Is Happiness? by Matthieu Ricard

I just rewatched this. I should watch it every day. I liked this part too:

Happiness is not the pursuit of endless succession of pleasant experiences. That is a recipe for exhaustion, not happiness.

Happiness is a way of being. It is an optimal state of mind … that gives you the inner resources to deal with the ups and downs of life

Matthieu Ricard is a Buddhist monk and psychiatrist. Here’s his website.
