What Is the International Day of Happiness?
Without doubt, International Day of Happiness is celebrated to be happy. The United Nations decided in 2013 to mark International Day of Happiness to highlight the significance of being happy in people’s life. The UN introduced the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 out of which three key aspects such as to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our planet were related to well-being and happiness.
The United Nations welcome everyone from any age group, any class, business world and the government to celebrate the International Day of Happiness.
International Day of Happiness: Aim
The International Day of Happiness acknowledges that happiness is an essential human goal, and requests the member nations to advance public policies to enhance the well-being of society.
By declaring to mark a particular day for happiness, the UN aims to concentrate world consideration on inclusive, equitable, and balanced economic growth. Such an approach must promote sustainable development that relieves hardship. The United Nation recognizes that happiness essentially is a blend of economic development as well as social and environmental well-being.
Background of International Day of Happiness:
The United Nations General Assembly in its July 12, 2012 declaration 66/281 announced to mark the International Day of Happiness on March 20 every year. UNGA established the importance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and ambitions in human beings’ lives worldwide and the consequence of their acknowledgment in public policy objectives. It establishes the necessity for a comprehensive, equitable and unbiased approach to economic growth that promotes sustainable development, poverty eradication, happiness and the well-being of all people.
Bhutan is one country which gave value to national happiness rather than national income and established Gross national Happiness in place of Gross National Product. Bhutan prompted the resolution in UNGA’s sixty-sixth session and a High-Level Meeting on “Happiness and Well-Being: Defining a New Economic Paradigm.”
International Day of Happiness 2021 Theme
International Happiness Day’s theme for the year 2021 is “HAPPINESS FOR ALL, TOGETHER”. When the world is tackling a coronavirus pandemic situation, the United Nations selected an appropriate theme. This is to encourage unanimity and harmony in the society. The commemoration of the day will witness the uniting people in the battle against COVID-19 to release from the tense situation.
What Do We Mean by Happiness?
Happiness seems to be a difficult idea to characterize, but largely it comprises two key subjects – how does one feel in the present moment and how satisfied one is with his human birth. In the present moment one wants to live a happy life on planet Earth. It can be achieved easily by doing SatGuru Rampal Ji Maharaj’s Sat-Bhakti. Such a true devotee does not face any worldly sorrows. After the completion of human life such devotee attains Salvation and goes to the Eternal Abode Satlok. The pious soul dwells at Satlok permanently and does not come in Kaal’s trap and vicious cycle of death and birth.
