I needed an emotional boost this morning, and I thought you guys could use one, too.
What is happiness, and how do we get it?
I have posted a 2004 TedTalk from Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard.
Why you should listen to him:
After training in biochemistry at the Institute Pasteur, Matthieu Ricard left science behind to move to the Himalayas and become a Buddhist monk -- and to pursue happiness, both at a basic human level and as a subject of inquiry. Achieving happiness, he has come to believe, requires the same kind of effort and mind training that any other serious pursuit involves.
