Of course, every one of us wants to be happy in his life. How do we do that?

Is it possible to buy happiness by money? I have a lot of money; does that mean I am happy? If the answer is yes, it means that poor people are not happy. Depression and other distressing thoughts, do they have anything to do with happiness? Can we be happy by our quality of thoughts?

Many questions, I hope to find some answers for them, thanks for your contributions.

My parents always talk me that happiness is the key to life. 

we don't need to have a lot of money to buy everything, we just satisfy with our own life.

Kiya haal hain Akashaya Biswal? Ka ha tum? Long time, my dear good friend. I hope you and your family are in a good state. You are right, money is not that matter for us to be happy. Satisfaction is a great treasure. Thanks, Akashaya.  

Money cannot buy you happiness until and unless your happiness lies in materialistic things. To which I don't disagree. Sometimes even that's important. Money helps you buy COMFORT but not happiness. Paradise is pointless if you have no one to share it with you...

Khudak ki kasam, main tum ku itifaq hain, Azharudeen Said sahib. I really agree with that kind of opinion. We need the partner to share our lives with. By the way, is it possible to be one of your friends? Thanks.

I feel contentment the key to happiness.

We need money of course  for our basic needs which  would makes  us happy in that sense . real happiness   is being active  and content  ...
