Radhanath Swami on The Ocean of Happiness

A person who finds inner peace and inner happiness is unaffected by the constant onslaught of happiness and distress, honor and dishonor, pleasure and pain, success and failure, diseases… these are constantly coming like a flowing river. Sometimes the river is wide, sometimes the river is dry, but the ocean is not affected by the power of its own depth and volume of water. Similarly, when the ocean of happiness awakens in our heart, then whatever may come in this world is not really very significant. It is only due to forgetfulness of God that things in this world are disturbing or apparently enticing.

  5. This is so true. As people in general are moving away from God, the worries and anxiety are increasing. All glories to H.H Radhanath Swami Maharaj.

  7. As HH Radhanath Swami says forgetfulness of God is the real cause of all the problems. If we follow this simple principle of remembering God constantly, then our lives will be successful and will be plesing to saintly people like HH Radhanath Swami.

  11. Thank you Radhanath Swami for educating us on the real happiness that we should strive to achieve - the love of God. Material happiness is indeed fleeting in nature & very superficial in comparision to the nectarean bliss of spiritual happiness that one gets when serving the Lord & His pure devotees.

  14. Very true. Only when there is no happiness inside, we tend to search for it outside. External happiness being unreliable in nature causes suffering
