Habits of well-being

TED Talk by the monk Matthieu Ricard (filmed Feb 2004):

What is happiness, and how can we all get some? Biochemist turned Buddhist monk
Matthieu Ricard says we can train our minds in habits of well-being, to generate a true sense of serenity and fulfillment.
Also: A more recent lecture, given at Google on Mar 15, 2007:
Change your Mind, Change your Brain: The Inner Conditions for Authentic Happiness
If happiness is an inner state, influenced by external conditions but not dependent on them, how can we achieve it? Ricard will examine the inner and outer factors that increase or diminish our sense of well-being, dissect the underlying mechanisms of happiness, and lead us to a way of looking at the mind itself
My previous post about Ricard, the "happiest man on earth" here.
