GPE0013 - A Buddhist monk shares his secrets to happiness

A Buddhist Monk's secrets to happiness

Join me as I chat with Buddhist Monk, Kelsang Dornying about life, mindfulness, Buddhism, happiness and cultivating a more peaceful state of being. I’m also inviting you to take part in a very special GUIDED MEDITATION with Kelsang Dornying and I at the very end of the podcast (1:08:27).

Here are some ways I believe this specific episode can help you:

  • Gain some actionable tips on living a happier more mindful life

  • Get a unique insight into Buddhism and the positive states of mind it cultivates

  • Get a Buddhist Monk’s perspective on the world and how it’s changing

  • Feel calmer, happier and more connected to the universe

  • Enjoy a 5-minute guided meditation at the end of the podcast!

Podcast Overview: In this deep, relaxing and peaceful conversation with Buddhist Monk, Kelsang Dornying (from the Kadampa Meditation Centre), we cover topics like how to live a happier more fulfilled life, mindfulness, meditation, Buddhism, anticipation, love and living in the moment. Lessons within this discussion will help you lead a happier, more content life if you put them into action.

Kelsang Dornying explains why a lot of people wander aimlessly through life, searching for happiness and never truly finding it. He then gives actionable advice on how to become a more peaceful, fulfilled and happier person (today!). He breaks down his concepts in this podcast and gives some great analogies that really help to explain his thoughts and ideas. If you’ve ever been interested in meditation, mindfulness, Buddhism and cultivating a calmer, more focused mind, then this self-development podcast episode will be great for you!

We also discuss Buddhism, Buddhist teachings, secrets to happiness and the Buddhist path to enlightenment. We touch on the certain states of mind that cultivate a happier way of being. Living in the moment and realising that we’re all impermanent. We talk about things like how at any given day at any given time life could end and the importance of really living your life to the fullest as you may not be here tomorrow.

This conversation goes deep and this description does not come close to doing it justice, so please tune in and let me know what you think in the comments section below! Do you agree with Kelsang Dornying and the Buddhist way of thinking and being? Why, why not?
