Happiness cannot be achieved by accumulating and holding on to outside favourable circumstances and worldly glories. I don’t know whether there is an eternal happiness or not, but there is an unconditional happiness. Unconditional happiness comes from this secret: surrender. Surrender is the act of loving and embracing the great unknown. Unconditional happiness comes from not running away from anything. It comes from taking even the most unfavoUrable circumstances as a path, a spiritual path, a truthful teaching.

— Anam Thubten Rinpoche
