Why Does My Happiness Always Go Away?

Nov 1 blog

Everyone is searching for happiness. Yet, happiness feels fleeting and elusive. Buddhism’s concept of the Ten Worlds explains why this is part of the human condition and what you can do about it.

Great achievement means happiness. To subdue evil is the great achievement. To accumulate goodness is called virtue. In Buddhism, great achievement and virtue (benefit) mean attaining Buddhahood in one’s present form. (Nichiren Daishonin, 13th century Japan)

Intro Lecture on the Buddhist Concept of the 10 Worlds

Visit Myosenji Temple this Sunday, November 1st, for a lecture on the Buddhist Concept of the Ten Worlds by our Chief Priest, Rev. Murata.
