Three Kinds of Happiness

The Buddha identified three kinds of happiness: dukkha-sukkha, or happiness that’s dependent on the conditions of your life; anicca-sukkha, or happiness that is based on our mind state; and sukkha-sukkha, happiness that’s independent of the conditions of your life or your mind state. This third type of happiness is the cessation that the Buddha talks about in the Third Noble Truth. This talk focuses on working with all three types of happiness as part of spiritual practice.
