Finding Inner Happiness: Tibetan Buddist Iama’s perspective on Peace and Happiness

(WTNH) – Finding inner peace is a conscious effort that has been a goal for centuries. Tibetan Buddist Iama, Khentrul Lodroe T’haye Rinpoche, shares his unique perspective living peacefully and ways you can try to reach more happiness.

“When we begin to understand how our mind works then we start to see that happiness is actually a state of mind. Happiness comes from our mind, and actually suffering comes from our mind,” said Rinpoche. His biggest message is to stop looking at things outside of ourselves for happiness and cultivate the happiness from within our mind.

Rinpoche has been teaching in the USA since 2002. He has 22 dharma centers across the country. He comes to Katog Vajra Ling Guilford CT yearly for weekend teachings. Katog Vajra Ling is a CT meditation group studying Tibetan Buddhism under Khenrul Rinpoche. They meet twice a week to deepen our personal practice and to support each other in developing greater compassion and wisdom for the sake of all beings. No previous meditation experience is required and new participants are warmly welcomed.
