Discourse and Workshops on Happiness

MP Government has set up an Anand Department to help create an ecosystem of lasting joy and subjective wellbeing. It is an accepted fact that material amenities alone can neither ensure a complete and holistic life nor can they guarantee absolute happiness! Keeping this in mind the department endeavours to make available tried and tested tools and techniques of happiness enhancement to the State which may help people lead happier, stress-free, mindful lives.

For this we invite all such personages, institutes and organisations-- who are already engaged in similar ventures at the national and international levels-- to join hands with us and work towards this noble cause. We invite them and offer them a platform to hold their workshops or deliver discourses in the State for the benefit of the various government departments, educational institutions and the general populace.
