Can the attainment of happiness be guaranteed? Happiness can be guaranteed if one engages the actual instructions and practices that cause happiness. Happiness is a type of mind and each type of mind has its own specific causes. Can happiness be attained immediately? It is possible but the vast majority of people have many bad mental habits that prevent them from attaining swift happiness. Therefore, bad habits must be reduced and eventually eliminated and good habits must be cultivated. How long this takes is up to an individual’s own effort. However, it is not so important as to how long it takes, as to whether or not we are making actual progress to attaining lasting happiness. Learn how to guarantee your own happiness!

If we were asked which is more important, mental health or physical health, if we are wise we would say mental health. The reason is more profound than what we may initially think. The profundity lies in the fact, that if we attain strong mental health in this life we shall carry this stability forward into future lives, because our mind and body are separate entities. At death we shall leave our old body behind and our mind shall travel to a new body and a new life. The good qualities that we cultivate in our mind shall ensure not only continued good mental health but also excellent physical health. If we wish, we can easily achieve the supreme good health of liberation from ordinary existence and experience everlasting joy. Learn what medicine we need to take to accomplish such health.
