The Buddha on happiness. (Allegedly.) Submitted by my friend Dylan S.

I’ve spent ages trying to track down three things: 1) if this is a legit Buddhist parable, 2) in what text this parable might appear, and 3) who made this image. I’m drawing blanks on all three.

But I do know where I got it — my friend Dylan sent it to me via Facebook. “I’m sure you’ve seen this,” he wrote, “but it screamed you.”

Scream with glee!

I have seen the quote before (it was making the rounds on Facebook, in various memes or just as a quote, a couple of weeks ago), but I’d never seen it attached to a smiley face. And what a great visual metaphor! The road to happiness!

See you on the path, happy readers. 🙂
