• It is a basic human need that everyone wants to
    live a happy life. For this, one has to experience
    real happiness. The so-called happiness that one
    experiences by having money, power, and
    indulging in sensual pleasures is not real
    happiness. It is very fragile, unstable and fleeting.
    For real happiness, for lasting stable happiness,
    one has to make a journey deep within oneself and
    get rid of all the unhappiness stored in the deeper
    levels of the mind. As long as there is misery at
    the depth of the mind all attempts to feel happy
    at the surface level of the mind prove futile.
