Just 8 Steps to Happiness

Everyone wants to be happy and no one wants to suffer, but very few people understand what is the real cause of happiness and what is the real cause of suffering.

We tend to look for happiness outside ourself, thinking that if we had the right house, the right car, the right job and the right friends that we like, we would be truly happy. We spend almost all our time adjusting the external world, trying to make it conform to our wishes.

Come discover the wealth of eight verses from the great Buddhist Master Geshe Langri Tangpa to illuminate your life and bring harmony to your relationships at home, work and community.

This series will explore the book The New Eight Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
