Matthieu Ricard on Finding Happiness Through Mind Training

This is a good TED Talk. I found this at Pick the Brain, who conveniently provided Ricard's main points:

Some of the topics covered include:

  • The nature of happiness and why it is often ignored for the sake of other pursuits.
  • The distinct different between happiness and pleasure.
  • Training the mind to control emotions to find happiness in any situation.
  • Scientifically measuring happiness and our ability to train the mind through neuro-plasticity.
