MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 23.5




Chapter 23 : Pleasure And Pain : 5
5. Real Happiness Lies Within

Why do you search, in vain, for your happiness, O worldly fools, outside, in objects, money, women, titles, honours, name and fame, which are false, worthless and like cow-dung?

You cannot get your happiness there. You are entirely deluded.
Search within the heart, subjectively in the Atman, the source and fountain of all happiness.

Real happiness is within you.

It is in the Atman. It is subjective. It is in the Sattva Guna and beyond Sattva.
It manifests when the mind is concentrated.

When the Indriyas are withdrawn from the objects outside, when the mind is one-pointed (Ekagra), when there is Vasana-Kshaya (annihilation of the Vasanas) and Manonasa (annihilation of the mind), when you become desireless and thoughtless, Atmic bliss begins to dawn; spiritual Ananda begins to thrill.
