Stop buying Stuff and learn how to be Happy instead

by Ratnaguna

What will we do instead of buying more stuff and hooking up to more electronic gadgetry? The only way is to learn the ancient art of happiness. The Buddha repeatedly said that the only reason he taught was to alleviate suffering, and he in fact enumerated three level of happiness. This teaching is no longer simply an issue of personal growth - it has become vital to the future of our planet.

Talk given by Ratnaguna at Manchester Buddhist Centre on 26th February 2011 in a series of free public talks, Buddhism and the Big Questions.
