Thank you for the heads-up; I hope a recording will be made available for those unable to join the event live.
The idea of ‘happiness through morality’ is one I have been thinking about a lot lately. My workplace recently required all staff to complete the first 4 weeks of Yale’s online Science of Wellbeing course (the university’s most popular course in over 300 years). The course “highlights research that reveals misconceptions about what makes us happy — and the concrete steps we can take to live a more fulfilling life”.
Predictably, the course encouraged practices such mindfulness and gratitude, and discussed the negative effects of social media. All fine. What amazed me though, was the complete absence of any discussion about the role of ethics and morality in connection with happiness.
How incredibly fortunate we are to have the Buddha-Dhamma as our guide.
