“Even if you are born into the most affluent of circumstances or enjoy a spectacular marriage that is no guarantee that you will be happy. Happiness does not depend on wealth or personal appearance, nor does it hinge on fame or recognition. If your heart is empty, you cannot build genuine happiness.
There is an expansive life state of profound, secure happiness that transcends any material or social advantage. It is called faith; it is called the life of Buddhahood.”
