#LL7 Dalai Lama | The Art of Happiness

Hatred and Anger are sharing the same words in Tibetic language ཞེ་སྡང, but in English there is a certain circumstance that anger could be positive, however never the hatred.


“When life becomes too complicated and we feel overwhelmed, it’s often useful just to stand back and remind ourselves of our overall purpose, our overall goal. When faced with a feeling of stagnation and confusion, it may be helpful to take an hour, an afternoon, or even several days to simply reflect on what it is that will truly bring us happiness, and then reset our priorities on the basis of that. This can put our life back in proper context, allow a fresh perspective, and enable us to see which direction to take.”

Sometimes we are very indulged in the past, the memory which was created by the happiest moment in our life. Sometimes we almost forget how in love we were together before all the thunderstorm arrived. And I wonder if that is the destiny for two people who came from two different worlds to learn the language of love. Then at the end of the story these two people would embark the future with distinctive values, instead of the same one.

“However, if we can transform our attitude towards suffering, adopt an attitude that allows us greater tolerance of it, then this can do much to help counteract feelings of mental unhappiness, dissatisfaction, and discontent.”

- Dalai Lama , The Art of Happiness


One day, the light passes through the tranquility

The sunset rises from the starry night

There is never a moment of le sole is rising , the never ending circulation of the darkness

That is the moment the sensation becomes utterly peaceful


I still remembered the laughters tra noi

At this moment, everything seems to be like a fairy tale

There is a word should never be revealed

There is a tale should never be fantasied

There is the sparkling flows along the river like it should be


The unhappiness, that anger, all stay in the memory

I wake up from the dream, and you whisper softly

You said that three magic words...

“There is a Possibility of freedom from suffering. By removing the causes of suffering, it is possible to attain a state of Liberation, a state free from suffering. According to Buddhist thought, the root causes of suffering are ignorance, craving, and hatred. These are called the ‘three poisons of the mind.’These”
