*Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external circumstances.
*If our mind is pure and peaceful we shall be happy, regardless of our external conditions, but if it is impure and unpeaceful we shall never find happiness, no matter how much we try to change our external circumstances.
*The purpose of meditation is to cultivate those states of mind that are conducive to happiness, peace and well-being, and to eradicate those that aren’t.
