Happiness: The Lifelong Pursuit..

Everyone is in the constant search of happiness. We rely on food, money, the company of others, and material goods to bring us happiness. It has become our habit to rely on temporary, worldly things to give us happiness. This is why often times even after going to a party, a nice restaurant, or buying a new car, we initially feel happy, but then shortly afterwards feel empty once again or become troubled by some other suffering.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan describes true happiness to be, that which does not increase, or decrease regardless of the circumstance. True happiness is not derived from worldly matter. Permanent happiness comes from the Self within, the pure Soul.

Param Pujya Dadashri, after Self Realization, discovered that the pure Soul, which resides in every living being, is the abode of infinite bliss. When people experience the Soul, and become one with their pure Soul, they get a taste of infinite, absolute bliss. This in essence is true happiness because it is derived from the Soul, which is permanent. The happiness experienced is not temporary or dependent on external or worldly factors.

Outside of the realm of true happiness, worldly happiness does exist. Param Pujya Dadashri explains that worldly happiness can be found by giving to others. When someone uses their mind, speech, and body in the service of others, nature rewards them with happiness. The inner intent of helping others should always be on your mind.

Param Pujya Dadashri had the strong inner intent for all of humanity to attain the happiness that he had attained. The foundation of Akram Vignan (stepless, spiritual science) is based on experiencing true bliss and becoming free from unhappiness.
