A Greater Happiness

The practice of the dharma enables us, when we practice accordingly, to make the most of this life.  What does this mean?  As dharma students, we gradually shift away from seeking the "happiness of the world" and, instead we seek to know a greater happiness:  the happiness of heart.  In this dharma talk, Peter explains what it means to incline ourselves to knowing a greater happiness.  The talk was given on January 3, 2021.

It's important, in this life, that we take time to reflect on this life.  What this life is, where we are, where we're heading.  In this dharma talk, Peter Doobinin speaks to some of the most important reflections we can make, what the Buddha called "Subjects for Frequent Contemplation."  By reflecting, in the manner described, we support ourselves in our efforts to know a greater happiness in this life.
