"But what about….."
"Bikkhus, dwell with yourselves as an island, with yourselves as a refuge, with no other refuge; with the Dhamma as an island, with the Damma as a refuge, with no other refuge."
Tonight's talk will address a few of the questions you have asked about the cultivation of happiness. We'll begin by noting that your very asking of questions is, in itself, skillful means. The Buddha invites us to contemplate and question only and always: ‘From what are sorrow, lamentation, pain, displeasure, and despair born? How are they produced?’ and, by analogy, from what is happiness born? We will explore together how to apply this inquiry to the questions you ask about happiness in the many circumstances of our individual and modern lives.
