True happiness lies within

From: Summer

Hi everyone and welcome,

His Holiness the Dala Lama posted the question: "What is the purpose of life?" He then said "I believe the purpose of life is to be happy. From the moment of birth, every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering...from the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment."

I quoted new member, Juan, who said "I know true happiness lies within". And that is precisely where we begin.

The Dalai Lama says "From my own limited experience, I have found that the greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes...ultimately, the reason why love and compassion bring us the greatest happiness is simply that our nature cherishes them above all else. The need for love lies at the very foundation of human existence. It results from the profound interdependence we all share with one another".

Through this forum and our meetings, we will explore new ideas and ways of thinking to create and enhance positive states of mind. We will also learn powerful meditation techniques that brings one's mind to a state of calmness, inner peace and feeling calm and refreshed.

We look forward to you joining us on Thursdays at 7pm in Foster City.

Summer
