Buddhist Thought: True Happiness

To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him. Buddha

Buddha is saying something very interesting here. True happiness comes from the inside. From the inside, one’s mind, comes the wisdom and virtue. Those learning lead to Enlightenment. To access those resources we need to have a calm, disciplined mind.

We need to be in control of our mind.

We can only achieve such a control through constant learning. Practise it through meditation. Through meditation you can access those inner resources and control your mind. Once you succeeded you will bring true happiness to those you love. You will enjoy good health. You will be on top of the world.

Meditate on it. 😉
