In this public talk, “Finding Well-Being and Happiness,” His Eminence Ling Rinpoche will talk about the need for cultivating inner well-being and happiness, and methods to achieve these states. We will explore how our untamed minds can be transformed to bring about a cessation of suffering and cultivate the happiness we seek.

In a talk given in Australia in March 2018, His Eminence observed: “When I meet people around the world, they express a lot of difficulties – health-related, emotional and work challenges. Despite our material progress, they face so many problems – greater stress and unhappiness. It proves that these internal problems can’t be solved through materialistic means.”
