World's Happiest Man: Joy Can Be Learned
By Jeremy Dean
Fri, Nov 2 2007

Are your conditions for happiness primarily external? Biochemist turned Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard has a message for you. The Dalai Lama's right-hand man explains that the mind is malleable and happiness can be learned and measured:

He finishes with this quote:

"Mind training matters. That this is not just a luxury, this is not a supplementary vitamin for the soul. This is something that is going to determine the quality of every instant of our lives. [...] We spend surprisingly little time taking care of what matters most: the way our mind functions, which ultimately determines the quality of our experience."​
The Independent has a short article on Matthieu Ricard.
