International Day of Happiness

Today is International Day of Happiness and we would like to share a little story with you.

A lesson on happiness from an African tribe:

"Happiness is laughing together. Sadness is crying alone.“

Once a scientist proposed a game for African aboriginal children. He placed a basket of sweets near a tree. He had the children stand 100 metres away from the tree. It was announced that whoever reaches there first will get all the sweets in the basket. He said: „Ready, steady, go!"

Do you know what these kids did? They all held each other’s hands and ran together towards the tree, dividing the sweets evenly among themselves and enjoyed the sweets.

When the scientist asked them why they did so, they replied: "Ubuntu.“ They said: "How can one be happy when others are sad?“

Ubuntu is an African philosophy. It means: "I am because we are.“ 

Let’s all share happiness and some "ubuntu" so everyone can be happy!


Watch : Laughing Yoga by Kapila Rasnayake

On this occasion we would like to once more share the video on laughter yoga with you that our supporter Kapila Rasnayaka kindly donated to us. We also shared it with our children and they had a lot of fun. So let's laugh and be happy together!
