Invited Lecture at Merck Pharmaceuticals

Swamiji delivered an enlivening talk June 20, 2023, on "The Art and Science of Happiness" at Merck Inc. in greater Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was given a warm welcome with approximately 150 Merck participants attending in-person and virtually.

Swamiji said that happiness is a feeling of pleasure or joy that we all strive for. However, it can be elusive. He pointed out that happiness is not something that we can find outside of ourselves. True happiness comes from within.

He then talked about the difference between hedonic and eudemonic happiness. Hedonic happiness is the kind of happiness that we get from short-term pleasures, such as eating delicious food, listening to music, or spending time with loved ones. Eudemonic happiness is the kind of happiness that comes from living a meaningful life, aligned with our values and goals. Hedonic happiness is fleeting. Eudemonic happiness, on the other hand, is long lasting. Swamiji highlighted some of the things that we can do to increase eudemonic happiness - to find our purpose in life, we need to live our lives in accordance with our values. We also need to practice gratitude, and find ways to connect with others. He discussed negativity bias, where the mind tends to focus on what we lack instead of the abundant blessings we have. He gave several tools to overcome this tendency, such as practicing gratitude and choosing to see goodness. He suggested  “positive reframing” of negative situations to help us find the unseen benefit.

The talk concluded with the need to go inwards to find true, everlasting happiness. This happiness is unaffected by external circumstances and is a consequence of being the best we can be, doing the best we can do, and thereby feeling the best we can feel. Swamiji concluded by stating that our intrinsic desire to be happy can be fulfilled only by uniting our individual consciousness with the supreme consciousness.

The Merck employees appreciated Swamiji's insights on how to live a happy and fulfilling life. The session ended with an interactive question-and-answer segment.
