From a meditation point of view ~ Bokar Rinpoche

We generally think that happiness and suffering come from external circumstances… From the Buddhist point of view, as well as that of meditation, happiness and suffering do not fundamentally depend on external circumstances, but on the mind itself. A positive mental attitude engenders happiness; a negative attitude produces suffering.
