Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill by Matthieu Ricard

Chapter by chapter Ricard lays ricard matthieu libros his thesis. The emotions that foster well-being and flourishing in humans are compassion, loving kindness, respect, appreciation, thoughtfulness, humility, mindfulness, etc.

The emotions that foster misery are anger, jealousy, addictive desire, pride, contempt, strong grasping, and so on.

The question arises, why if we have such potency do we even need Christ?
