To be truly happy ~ Khenpo Gangshar

From time to time, contemplate the karmic law of cause and effect; take the suffering of others upon yourself, and offer whatever comfort and virtue you may have to others.

In the practice of the giving and taking of happiness and suffering, difficulty isn’t to be rejected, nor comfort sought. Simply relax. To be without ideas of good and bad, or hope and fear, enables you to be joyful in any company, to be cheerful wherever you may find yourself — surely this is what it means to be truly happy!
