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.

God Siva knows in infinite, all-abiding, loving superconsciousness. Siva knows from deep within all of His creations to their surface. His Being is within every animate and inanimate form.
