How do you define "happiness to yourself and to others"? happiness has abstract and multi-definition to all of us. but how do we define happiness to ourselves and to others. is giving -up on material (expensive or cheap), giving to gratification others? happiness is elusive that cannot be grabbed always. we always search for it..what do you think? any opinion is greatly accepted (",)

I think happiness is different for everyone. For me, its a state of well being when I'm doing something I enjoy and everyone I know and care about is well or becoming well.

For me happiness is when I am at peace with myself.There are two types of happiness one is momentary and other is permanent. Enlightened souls like Buddha and Mahavir had permanent happiness while all of use get momentary happiness, for example there was going to be a herbal fair in which our institute was supposed to take part and I had lots of work, now it got postponed so I am happy at the moment.So all such happiness are temporary.For perfect happiness one has to become enlightened.

For me, Happiness for me is when I see many people around me happy because of me. I want to give happiness to others by helping them in any manner I could do for them. Happiness also for me is when I'm at peace, where the times I appreciate God's gift. Something weird right? Happy mylotting!

There are not more than 2 happiness; its just one. Happiness is when you are fine with all around you; happiness is when you enjoy life; happiness is each moment you tell yourself that all is ok. You dont need to be rich, sickeness, a king, a lawyer, engineering; it depends how you feel and live LIFE. The only reason to stay happiness, is enjoying life. (sorry, my english is not good; but I hope you can to understand me).
