    Money cannot buy Happiness.

    The real source of happiness lies within us. Money cannot buy happiness.A person, who acquires education and living up to its ideals is happy. The purity of thought, word and deed make us happy.
    For being happy it is necessary to avoid jealousy, anger, hatred, selfishness, greed, pride etc. We should not indulge in sinful acts such not to cause injury to mankind through harsh words. The next condition is to live with the contented mind. We should work with a calm mind pursuing our profession with honesty, sincerity and integrity. We should lead a life to perform duty with devotion and help our fellowmen by believing that every duty conducted by us is possible by God's Grace.

    Nicely said by the author. Money cannot buy happiness and also peace. Why because I have seen people having lots of money and they go mad on planning things in big way and in the melee they miss out mingling with others, discard socializing and above keep aloof from the crowd and their strange behavior baffles every one including their own family members and thus they loose relations and close friends do part with them. And I have seen that those who have lots of money they wont have good deep sleep, their thoughts run amok on how to invest and where to invest. In this regard I envy the person living in the huts. They work hard during the day as masons, earn around 500 rupees, have some drinks in the evening, have sumptuous food and sleep bindaas in his hut not concerning over theft or what so ever.

    Happiness cannot be purchased with money. There are several people who have millions of money with them, but spend days without any happiness. They miss the family life. Husband and wife lead independent life. Children, if any, will be in another world.
    At the same time certain people lead a very pathetic life, might be finding it very difficult to have a full meal a day, but will be leading a very happy life. They share whatever each is having. They spend free time together sharing their experiences of the day. Open conversation is the major phenomenon which help sharing problems and solving difficulties if any. This leads to happy life. Money cannot buy this.

    Money can only buy materialistic things and those things never provide true happiness. Although they give happiness to some extent, but that happiness is temporary and last for a very short period of time and as soon as the effects of that materialistic possession begin to lesson happiness becomes to fade away.
    That is why one should never run around money instead try to find true happiness in the happiness of others by making everyone happy.

    Many can not buy happiness. A content person can have a happy life but a greedy man can never be happy. By earning money you may be procuring many facilities for your life, but you can't be happy with those if you are not satisfied with what you have. You will be always running and you will never enjoy the food also. It will also be finished with a task only. But a satisfied man will enjoy his food. He will spend time with his family while eating and never completes that like a task. You will be happy if you have fun with your family members. if you have good friends and sharing good moments with them will give you happiness. But if you have a crore of rupees in our bank account it may not give you any happiness. But a talk with your spouse on general issues and about your family will bring in a lot of happiness.

    With money we can live but not totally. In one tamil cinema a comedian was acted as a compounder to a doctor. When one patient came to him for medicine asked him, 'why you feel so bad?'. He replied as doctor advised him to eat one apple daily. Another patient (who was a rich)told him that doctor asked him to have wheat porridge daily. This actor advised them not to worry and exchange themselves as rich can give apple to the poor patient and poor can offer his porridge to rich one. Though this is comedy for the film the real thing behind is it is happening in every family as rich person cannot eat as he please due to his health problem and poor need rich diet due to his health problem.

    Rightly said, neither money nor any other form of luxury or status can bring happiness. But the question is what kind of happiness we are talking about? What do we know about happiness?

    Is it the temporary outburst of good feelings? Even the dictionary says – a state of being happy. Before start searching for something, shouldn't we know what we are searching for? How would I identify that yes, this is what I was searching for? I need to have a clear cut idea of what happiness means.

    If we assume happiness to be a feeling, than it depends on thoughts. Because good thoughts brings good feelings and bad thoughts brings bad feelings. So if happiness depends on thoughts, what should I do with thoughts to always remain happy? Can I dictate my thoughts? If that is possible, than the whole problem is solved. Than the world would no longer remain in misery / pain / sorrow.

    The fact is, happiness always depends on thoughts and thoughts always depend on external circumstances. Anything that depends on something else, can never bring everlasting happiness. Dependence itself suggests change.

    Only that which doesn't depend on anything can be eternal. Bliss is something which doesn't depend on anything. Because it's a state which happens when thoughts cease.

    Money is a very important thing in our life but it is not everything.

    Happiness is a state of mind. Money can bring materialistic pleasures but for being happy, one has to get rid of worries and stress which are so common in today's life.

    Some people know art of living. They work as well as enjoy. At the same time there are people who are always unhappy and blame everything on someone else. They will always be in a worrying phase and search excuses for their failures.

    Knowledge is power.

    Money is the part of our life but it is not life. Many of us see our happiness in earning money but I think real money or earnings are blessings of someone we get by helping the needy. There are many things that we can not buy through money like hunger, love etc. But we can buy food for the hunger. we can get the love through help. More than the money, giving time to family, make someone smile that will bring us happiness that we are asking for.
    That's definitely a great topic the author had written about and discussing here. It's now a major problem over a world as we are searching happiness over social media and many other things.

    So we should serve our country and the needy to get the happiness.

    Obviously money can not buy happiness but it can definitely buy materialistic things and some people do get happy with materialstic things but that happiness does not remain forever.
    Forever happiness comes with required money, pure heart, helping others, living in harmony.
    Happiness is an emotion that is discovered inside our own selves.
    Happiness is love that can't be bought.
    True happiness lies within you and you need to be true to yourself and earning livelihood on your own.
