Radhanath Swami on Longing for Happiness

The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna tells in the Bhagavad Gita, “Do not be attached to the fruits of your work and do not be attached to not doing your duty” This is subtle and difficult for many to understand: how to perform one's duty and not be attached to the fruits of one's work? This is achieved by experiencing a higher taste. And what is that higher taste that everyone is looking for? The heart, the soul is longing for happiness. The Supreme Absolute Truth is the embodiment of all pleasure and every living being who is part and parcel of the Supreme Absolute Truth is, by nature, seeking pleasure.

    Everybody is seeking happiness----question is whether it is in temporary (material) objects or in permanent (spiritual) objects.

  8. Very true. Every soul is looking for happiness in one way or the other, but until it comes to the conclusion that by getting the real constitutional position only one can get real happiness, there is no happiness. Thank you Radhanath Swami for this message.
