Using Buddhist Insights in Implementing Gross International Happiness

By Jean Karel Hylkema

Abstract

The author deals with the importance of Buddhist insights for the implementation of the concept of Gross National Happiness. He demonstrates that the Buddhadharma comprises many insights and methods that can contribute significantly to responsible leadership; that it is more important and effective to work on our spiritual and mental capacities than on learning and working with methods that are not based on the right view and right motivation; and that working from the right insights into the true nature of reality, guided by a right motivation/attitude – partly through practicing the Six Paramitas – is the most effective way in to achieve good and sustainable results with our leadership and management. This is also the deeper purpose of working with the concept Gross International Happiness
