The Dalai Lama's guide to happiness (video)

Amillionsmilesmovie, Oct. 8, 2013; Ashley Wells, Crystal Q. (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

This clip looks at Buddhism and happiness, asking if they are a match made in heaven or something else? This 8-minute epic reveals some incredible insights into human behavior and values that impact our happiness, particularly in materialistic Western life so many of us are living or reaching for. The Dalai Lama's talk is from his "The Quest for Happiness" public talk in Adelaide during his "Beyond Religion Tour" in Australia.
While ideally we would have used footage of Tibetan Buddhist monks in this video, we were unable to and instead used footage from our recent trip to Buddhist Burma, where we acknowledge there may be differences in how Buddhism is practiced. We do not mean to offend anyone; if anyone would like to fly us to Tibet to re-film it, we'll happily accept.
