Happiness and How it Happens

Finding contentment through mindfulness

The Happy Buddha

Happiness and How it Happens reveals how happiness is a state of being we all want and can have, because happiness is our true nature! Suryacitta aka The Happy Buddha explores what happiness actually is and how we all can achieve it through the transformational practice of mindfulness meditation.

Suryacitta aka The Happy Buddha is a member of the Western Buddhist Order, and has led retreats in Europe on the art of happiness for over eight years.

A great thing about the book is that, by the time you've worked through the earlier chapters, this radical and apparently counter-intuitive perspective comes across as obvious. It is, in fact, the very core of Buddhist insight and practice. The methods Suryacitta offers for investigating one's immediate experience open up a real possibility of getting a direct glimpse of our true nature and discovering for ourselves that this is how happiness, in fact, happens. - Tejananda John Wakeman

I would pop it in a Christmas stocking for a friend who's startlng to show some interest in 'other ways' of looking at their world, and to anyone asking the kinds of question that suggest they are on the verge of their own version of 'awakening'. - Resurgence Magazine
