happiness equation !!!!




Who knew that happiness can have a equation, I was glancing through one of the lectures by   Swami   Sarvapriyananda, he introduced to something called as a happiness equation , something proposed by Martin Seligman, the father of positive psychology.   The version he shared and which is in perfect agreement with the  Purusartha’s of   Vedanta is something like this

H = P + E + M

  • P is for pleasure.   Good food, movies .  they are short-lived.
  • E comes from engagement, our profession, creativity , research
  • M is for meaningful, for others.  First beyond you and then beyond your family.

Happiness from E and M should make up for the most. u dine at a good restaurant , u spend 1 hour teaching a poor student.  after some months , years the later activity will give you much more happiness. 

Very profound!!!

  1. True indeed. Engagement and family are directly proportional...Absence of one will definitely affects other.....

    1. i partially agree :), example all the greats like swami ji say , so it was more of engagement and meaningfulness. rather more meaningfulness less engagement , but for mere mortals like all dimension of p, e and m circles around family.
