Many people come to find out about Buddhism to get something out of it and find a solution to their problems. That’s fine and good, but if you really want to turn your life around and find inner happiness, then it’s time to start serving others and giving back, as Ajahn Brahm explains.

Fly-in fly-out monk Ajahn Brahm, discusses a Buddhist approach to charity which includes combining both compassion with wisdom to really help those in need.
Ajahn Brahm talks about the beauty of generosity in the human heart, and how when we put our heart into generosity, everybody is a winner.
Ajahn Brahm explains how he maintains his energy in his very busy life. It is fuelled by the inspiration that arises when serving others. While it seems counter intuitive, going the extra mile when tired and low, releases energy and happiness, especially when we are working to give to others.
