a holy man in India may think that happiness is in himself .it is in needing nothing from outside himself.in wanting nothing, he lacks nothing.he sits still there will all attention to his religious contemplation,free even of his own body ,or nearly free of it ,if some admirer bring him food he eats it ;if not ,he starvers all the same.what it the outside world is nothing to him.his religious contemplation is his joy,the accomplishment of which is itself a joy within himself.

in my dictionary,it defines happiness as lucky or fortunate,but I think happiness is the capacity of enjoying what you have.it is not how many fortunate you have,it is how do you perceive what you encounter,it is not what you want to get,it is enjoying what you do possess.
