Quote of the day

The path of Karma yoga is the path of selfless service. Jnana yoga is the path of understanding or knowledge. Bhakti yoga is the path of devotion or love for God. These are the three paths. One should understand that these paths are not exclusive to each other. Everybody has activity in his life; everybody has a mind for analysis and understanding; also everybody has emotions. It means that in everybody's life, all these three element are present. There is no one in the whole world whose life does not contain all of them. Selfless activity, knowledge and love are in everybody's life. But then, as one proceeds step by step towards the goal, a time comes when one of the three develops more than the other two. It happens by itself, according to the nature of the individual. It depends upon his background - the mental, emotional and physical equipment that he has. Even though one of the three starts to predominate over the other two, traces of the two still remain.

All want to be happy and yet very few people have permanent happiness in their life. Why is it like this?

The answer is that, due to their ignorance, people do not know that the only purpose of human life is the attainment of permanent peace and happiness. The mistake they make is that most people seek happiness in the external world but this happiness exists already in their inner self.

This attainment of one’s innate happiness and peace is variously known as Self-Realisation, Liberation, Moksa, Nirvana or God-Experience. Wise people lead their life in such a manner so that this single aim of human life is realised before their death. They alone are fortunate while the rest find nothing but misery.
