Painting of happiness

Nazim Hikmat, the great Turkish Poet once asked his friend Abidin Dino, Turkish artist and famous painter, to draw a picture of Happiness. He drew picture of a whole family, cramped up on a broken bed, under a leaky roof in a shabby room, but still with a smile on each member’s face! The painting became very famous. Happiness is not absence of suffering. It comes with acceptance and gratitude for the conditions of life.
