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.

It is true indeed the secret to happiness is to develop inner peace. Meditation is the best choice to obtain peace and calmness in the mind and also cure our internal sickness such as depression, fear, anger, anxiety etc.  Hence, practice more in meditation may lead to higher level which is spirituality.

The Nyingmapa Matthieu Ricard might explain why he feels so happy while sharing cozy moments with such a brutal criminal as the evil dalie lame, known for inciting racist bloody riots, gruesome self-immolations, and waging a horrifying war against a large section of the Tibetan people because of their religious beliefs.

Just in case Matthieu Ricard fails to offer an explanation (about so much happiness while sharing cozy moments with the evil criminal dalie), here follow some other people also overflowing with exhilarating happiness, all of them well known mass murderers and war criminals!

Scientists would be amazed at their beatific levels of ”upbeat activity”!

And since not only Matthieu Ricard but also four-legged animals such as hyenas can experience beatific happiness while smelling blood, let's integrate them in our gallery! Any similarity with the above pictured is not mere coincidence!

What's definition of happiness? Research in the field of positive psychology and happiness often define a happy person as someone who experiences frequent positive emotions, such as joy, interest, and pride, and infrequent (though not absent) negative emotions, such as sadness, anxiety and anger. Happiness has also been said to relate to life satisfaction, appreciation of life, moments of pleasure, but overall it has to do with the positive experience of emotions.
