Living without the slightest bit of peace and happiness is like living a life in an evil realm, a lower realm. Therefore, although each person has a different situation and ideal of life, in general, they all strive to find and aim for peace and happiness.

Once the Blessed One was staying at Sàvatthi, and he called to the bhikkhus:

There are these two kinds of bliss, bhikkhus, what are the two? Lost at home and lost in renunciation. The ultimate victory in these two is the renunciation. Pleasure and faraway. The ultimate victory in these two bliss is far away.

There are these two kinds of bliss, bhikkhus, what are the two? Bliss gives birth to y and happiness does not give birth to y. The ultimate victory in these two bliss is the unborn happiness.

There are these two kinds of bliss, bhikkhus, what are the two? Pleasure belongs to the body and bliss belongs to the mind. The ultimate victory of these two bliss is mental bliss.

There are these two kinds of bliss, bhikkhus, what are the two? Blissful saints and happy are not saints. The ultimate victory in these two bliss is the bliss of the Noble One.

DISCLAIMER:

Finding happiness is a human need and a legitimate desire. Depending on the concept of life of each person, feeling happiness and joy with different levels and levels. Living without the slightest bit of peace and happiness is like living in the evil realms, the lower realms. Therefore, although each person has a different situation and ideal of life, in general, they all strive to find and aim for peace and happiness.

Happiness in life for everyone is usually full health, less illness, followed by satisfying the needs of the senses, possessing as much material, money, affection, fame and sleep… with pleasures in general. However, the pursuit of the five senses to seek and create happiness is fragile, because they are difficult to find but easy to lose. That is not to mention when standing on the verge of happiness, the strength and energy are exhausted or you have to pay a heavy price for the calculations and regrets for a lifetime.

Practitioners, on the other hand, reject worldly pleasures but are still not beyond the goal of finding peace and freedom from the world. Unlike the happiness of people in the world, which is possession, the happiness of monastics is letting go. The more you let go, let go, share, live for everyone, the greater the happiness, which is separation. On the other hand, at the gross level, happiness is satisfying the needs of the body such as eating, wearing, sleeping… Going deep inside, the purity of the soul is a magical peace. Those who experience meditation have profoundly experienced the tranquil joy of inner silence.

The most genuine and lasting joy and happiness is the joy of the Saints. Peace arises when greed, anger, delusion, and defilements are eliminated, thirst and craving are eradicated, ignorance is erased, the Noble One abides in peace, liberation, and Nirvana.
