We are in constant pursuit of happiness. But what does it mean to be truly happy? And doesn’t Buddhism teach us that to focus solely on our own happiness creates suffering instead? In our newest e-book, Tricycle Teachings: Happiness, some of our favorite contributors—including Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, B. Alan Wallace, Joseph Goldstein, and Ken McLeod—offer a range of Buddhist perspectives on happiness and the paradox at the heart of its pursuit.
