ItemThe connection between happiness and practice in Buddhism and Aristotelian Philosophy(Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2021) NyartikaThis explores what happiness means according to the Buddhist and Aristotelian perspectives. Both view happiness as kind of practice which can be cultivated, not a gift that good fortune bestows upon humans.
