Bliss is Legal : Buddhism 101 – Ep. 27
In this episode, Professor Thurman points out the unspoken rule in our culture that it isn’t OK to be happy for no apparent reason. He explains that in fact, reality is bliss and joyfulness. When we understand the nature of reality, it makes perfect sense to be happy. We just don’t experience our life that way because we think we are separate from everything else. This, he explains, was the Buddha’s discovery.
This episode is the first of a two-part recording of a lecture given at Tibet House California on June 4, 2015, titled “Tibet’s Gift to the World.” The lecture will conclude in episode 28.
