The True Sources of Happiness

Bodhinatha describes how harmonious relationships are maintained in grihastha life, in which the natural state is to be surrounded by family and friends. These relationships are important and help us to live a happy dharmic life, but problems arise when we are depending on others to make us happy. This dependency on others for our happiness is a false concept, which Bodhinatha clears up in a beautiful statement about how true happiness is found within oneself.

If difficult things are happening to you and your mind is disturbed because of them and you have mental arguments within you because you can't accept your own karma, go to the feet of Lord Siva in your mind.
