HOW TO BE HAPPY
We all are seeking happiness every day of our lives and yet, in spite of some occasional success, a deeper more lasting sense of happiness seems to be out of our reach. Is there some secret to finding true and enduring happiness? In this talk we’ll explore the Buddha’s perspective on this quest for well-being and how we might find more effective ways to fulfill our innermost desires.

“I’m so pleased that Gonpo Ludup Study Group is hosting my friend Don Handrick,” said Ven. Robina Courtin. “He is a marvelous teacher, down to earth and very kind. He graduated in 2004 with top honors from the intensive seven-year Buddhist philosophical program at Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa in Tuscany, Italy.”
