Happy Talk

"Central to Buddhist belief is the alleviation of suffering - with the end result a form of happiness. Central to our founding fathers’ belief was the inalienable right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. But do these two expressions of Enlightened thought mean the same thing? That’s for us to find out at our new series of on-stage conversations between personalities and experts." - Tim McHenry, Director of Public Programs
