What is happiness ? 1. Good luck, good fortune, prosperity. 2. An agreeable feeling or condition of the soul arising from good fortune or propitious happening of any kind; the possession of those circumstances or that state of being which is attended with enjoyment; the state of being happy; contentment; joyful satisfaction; felicity; blessedness.
It's pretty hard to tell what does bring happiness. Poverty and wealth have both failed. - Kin Hubbard Joy can be real only if people look upon their life as a service, and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness. - Leo Tolstoy
If you observe a really happy man you will find him building a boat, writing a symphony, educating his son, growing double dahlias in his garden. He will not be searching for happiness as if it were a collar button that has rolled under the radiator. - W. Beran Wolfe The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase, if you pursue happiness you'll never find it. C. P. Snow Speculation
Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others. - Buddha
Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. - Nathaniel Hawthorne Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within. It is not what we see and touch or that which others do for us which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do, first for the other fellow and then for ourselves. Helen Keller SELECTIVE PERCEPTION
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. - Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. - Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama Happiness, it seems to me, consists of two things: first, in being where you belong, and second and best in comfortably going through everyday life, that is, having had a good night's sleep and not being hurt by new shoes. - Theodor Fontane SELECTIVE PERCEPTION
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. - Albert Schweitzer People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within. - Ramona L. Anderson SELECTIVE PERCEPTION
The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family. - Thomas Jefferson SELECTIVE PERCEPTION What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life. Leo Buscaglia
Ananda mayo bhasyat Each one is looking for pleasure. All 84 lakhs species. What sabdha pramana says VEDANTA SUTRA says..
GENERAL CONCEPTION Every thing should be nice compared with the background. Ex. Lakhpati is unhappy in the company of a crorepati (Billionaire).
Understanding: this is all Known as material happiness. Nice eating, sleeping, mating, defending. Car, education, own house, health, bank account, successful business, beautiful wife, children etc.

Birth Pain agony
Old Age pain
ADI DEVIK ADI BHAUTIK
Science can not give us happiness… they are concern with only temporary solution and they give us comforts in doing a particular job. Everything related to science is external and nothing to do with internal development. On the contrary they give us artificial mad made trouble.
