Thread: Don't settle for happiness

    This is quite a long extract (ch.4 p.35) from Ajahn Sumedho's little book "Now is the Knowing" which was written a few years ago - but its well worth reading:

    Happiness, Unhappiness and Nibbana:

    ...and here's the link to the book itself:

    That is a great extract. Every time I read Ajahn Sumedho’s work I think how amazing he makes the Dhamma approachable. I look forward to reading the whole book. A daily reminder to remember just what we are looking toward. As Philg says”happiness is ephemeral”

    Thank you Aloka for the link!
