Buddhist monk, Matthieu Richard (the Dalai Lama’s righthand man), has a fascinating lecture on TED about the nature of happiness and how happiness can be found through mind training.
Some of the topics covered include:
- The nature of happiness and why it is often ignored for the sake of other pursuits.
- The distinct different between happiness and pleasure.
- Training the mind to control emotions to find happiness in any situation.
- Scientifically measuring happiness and our ability to train the mind through neuro-plasticity.
