What is "True Happiness"?

When people encounter hardships, sorrows or difficulties, they will try to find the fastest and easiest way to solve or overcome these problems. However, it is never simple nor easy to discover the root cause of suffering in human life, because the causes of suffering are specific to each person due to the differences in karma created by each individual in past existences.
In His teachings, Nichiren Daishonin reveals the One True Way for all mankind to overcome the fundamental and inevitable sufferings of birth, old age, sickness and death, as well as to control the earthly desires which cause hardship and sorrow in life, thus achieving a stable and peaceful life condition.
Happiness, in its true sense, does not merely mean being satisfied with food, clothing and shelter; nor does it signify simply living a life of comfort. With a strong commitment and a firm determination to advance in faith in the Daishonin’s True Law, every single believer, without exception, will be able to purify one’s life, improve both spiritual and physical health, bring joy to one’s family, enrich one’s life, and above all, transform all of one’s misfortunes into good fortune, thereby achieving true happiness.
