Happiness Happens

Happiness (sukha) is the next link in the chain of Transcendent Dependent Arising. This is not the temporary kind of happiness that comes from getting what we want (or getting away from what we don’t want.) It’s the easeful, contented, liberating kind of happiness that follows naturally from the states of Joy (pamojja), Rapture (piti) and Tranquility (passaddhi) that are the result of practicing with Confidence/Faith (saddha).
