Why Aren’t we Happy all the Time?

We have never learned how to fulfil our deepest wish for lasting happiness. In this episode Gen-la Jampa explains how we are using our intelligence in a way that is not leading to happiness even though that is what we wish for. This extract is taken from a teaching given by Gen-la Jampa at International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon, and is based on the book Modern Buddhism by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Available as a free ebook.
