Happiness Industry: Joy at last! | Ajahn Brahmavamso

July 26, 2020

Is it really possible to be happy in the world? Or is there something inherently wrong with the system, and no matter what we do with our relationships, with our circumstances, with our mind, that we can’t really be happy? Ajahn Brahm takes us deeper into the notion of what happiness really is, and how true happiness can be found. The Buddha’s teaching of acceptance and letting go of states leads to the kind of deep happiness that cannot be found by shopping in the ‘happiness industry’ of this world. As Ajahn Chah famously said: “Joy at last -to know there is no happiness in the world!”
