*WHAT KIND OF HAPPINESS DOES BODHISATTVA WANT US TO HAVE?*

Knowing that there is no eternal happiness in this world, you must begin to learn to truly understand the attributes of happiness based on the Buddha’s teachings.

In Buddhism, it is said that Buddhas and Bodhisattvas want us to be happy. What should be our understanding of happiness? Where can happiness be? 

For example, we find happiness after we have a good shower and probably a good sleep. The same goes with having a good meal.

But after we wake up, we feel tired again; after the shower we are dirty again; when someone offers to buy you dinner, you make it a point not to eat all day, so that you can have a big meal for dinner - you are also very happy.
So, what’s next? All is gone tomorrow!

Hence, give this some thought. Just what kind of happiness does Bodhisattva want us to have? It is the happiness that we feel from our heart.

*A STATE-OF-THOUGHTLESSNESS*

Master Jun Hong Lu: Buddha once said, “Neither suffering nor happiness is real, it is only a transient thought that we hold on to”. When there is clinging to the thought of “I am very happy now” - we shall be happy. Conversely, if we feel that we are suffering, we too, will be trapped by that thought. That is why the sutra says that we should let go and purify our thoughts as it is through this way the state-of-pure mind thrives in us.

*WHERE DOES HAPPINESS COME FROM?*

The Bodhisattva says: _”When you help others, you will be very happy.”_ Well, when you do just that, you continue to feel the happiness. Then, when others are grateful and hold respect towards you for helping them, won’t you be even happier?

And where does this happiness come from? It is from your innate nature. It is not something that goes away after one or two days. Those who have helped others will be remembered for a long time.

Conversely, if the only thing you care about is how to help yourself, the happiness that you gain tends to disappear very quickly.
