[GMW #4678] Teaching Of Happiness In All Schools & Universities Of The World

[GMW #4678] Teaching Of Happiness In All Schools & Universities Of The World Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000

~ Idea 6063~
22 May 2003
Dear Dr. Muller,

I really enjoyed your talk about happiness at the University of Washington in Seattle last night. I am the Swiss from Zurich who spoke with you at the end.

I recently traveled in Bhutan and heard that the king of Bhutan said in an interview that he is more interested in the GROSS NATIONAL HAPPINESS than in the Gross National Product of his nation. What a great idea! It is remarkable that a head of a state expressed it. I am sure most politicians would laugh at such a statement and call it totally unrealistic but after seeing how the Bhutanese people live I think the king is successful.

Are you aware of any studies on “National Happiness: and what the factors are that contribute to such a goal?” Obviously food, shelter and clothing are necessary but the hard part is the ideology that allows people to get along and to obtain the skill to at least reach a modicum of that state called happiness.

I wish a University would engage in a world study of this subject. It would not be easy to be objective. How does one quantify such a thing? Nevertheless a good questionnaire should give the examiner a fairly good idea.
Hans-Rudolf Gahler M.D.

I answered him that I recommended the creation of Ministries of Happiness in all governments and the teaching of happiness in all schools and universities of the world.

The most beautiful question a person can ask themself is:
"How can I be of service to Creation and express my gratitude for the tremendous, miraculous gift of my life?"
