Quote of the day
About the three gunas, the Lord says that all beings have these three, and nobody is without them. And here is the point: a spiritual seeker wants to transcend all three, even the Satvic. Tamsic is the lowest: sleepiness and lethargy and no discrimination. Better than that is Rajsic, at least the person is active and working. In Rajsic there is activity and reason - reason for enjoyment of pleasures. Satvic joy is through meditation, through service to others, and through purification of the physical and astral body. But enlightenment is beyond even Satvic; then happens bliss. Bliss is even beyond joy. Bliss and God are one.

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.
