‘Nungairol’: the Religion of Happiness
We’re all golden sunflowers inside.
―ALLEN GINSBERG Sunflower Sutra
What is your idea of happiness? Its notion is as many as the people defining it, but it is not a matter of quantity. Some folks would even say that vegetarianism makes us happier; others say it is free from the mundane activities of our life. In today’s world we are also seeing newer trends like the birth of Gross National Happiness and the conceptualisation of happiness hypothesis. None of these is, however, related to real happiness that is ultimate and has no predecessor or successor. It is neither left nor right, up nor down, east nor west—it exists independent of our existence.
