Ted Talk – Becoming Buddha on the Internet

Bob Thurman shares the idea that focussing on ourselves can’t bring us happiness and that showing compassion and generosity towards others is the way to find it. This idea echoed across many spiritual traditions is actually supported by a growing number of scientific studies that reveal giving to others actually makes us happier. We might only have a smile to share, but that’s enough to make a huge difference to someone else’s life and consequently, it seems, our own.
