As Mathieu Ricard, a Buddhist monk states, happiness is a state of being and it can be learned by everyone. But we need to consciously develop inner peace and happiness as we may get easily overwhelmed by our habituations and difficulties in daily life. Learning, contemplation and meditation are ways to improve our quality of life. Stopping our negative emotions like hate, ignorance, anger and desire is most important. They only increase our sense of "I" and our attachment.
