Glorious Immortal Self! There is a permanent Reality behind this entire universe
that lies before you. There is a vital living Truth behind the names and forms that
constitute the world we have come to know. That great Reality, that living Truth is
of the nature of bliss and blessedness. It is a state of untrammeled freedom,
limitless peace, boundless wisdom and indescribable bliss. It is a joy which nothing
upon the surface of the earth can even remotely equal. And that bliss, freedom,
peace, wisdom and joy is your essential and eternal state. That is your real abode.
That is your ultimate destiny

state. This life is given to you in order to realize that Reality. It is this realizationthat ultimately gives you the power of totally transcending all sorrows and miseriesand limitations, which this earth-life imposes upon you. In one word, the goal of yourlife is the realization of the Supreme Reality. It is this achievement, and thisachievement alone, which is the central purpose of your life. This is the fact, whichis the one redeeming feature of human life upon this earth, despite all itssordidness, all its wretchedness and misery. The fact is that life is a glorious meansof attaining the Supreme State in which real and unalloyed happiness can beexperienced.THE GREAT SEARCH FOR HAPPINESSLet us make an observation of life. What significant point emerges out of ourobservation? It is that wherever man exists, activity is also evident. People arerunning about — everyone bursting with activity! There never seems to be a moment just to pause and reflect. And what is this activity? Let us try to analyse it. Most ofthis activity is a furious search for happiness, for enjoyment, for pleasure, ofdifferent degrees and shades of experience. Simultaneously, man is ceaselesslytrying to rid himself of sorrow, pain and suffering. He is trying to avoid all that isunpleasant, painful, sorrowful and grievous, and to attain all that is joyous, pleasant,happy and enjoyable. It may be argued that man willingly endures much hardship anddiscomfort, and even makes a great deal of effort to work hard during all the fivedays of the business week. He accomplishes many difficult tasks — so how could itbe right to say that he was trying to avoid unpleasant and painful experience? Butthen, go deeper and discover the motive of his voluntary struggle! Through all thiseffort and exertion, man aims to take it easy later on, to cushion himself withcomforts and to pension his life with pleasures. All these efforts are directed at theearning of money — for money enables one to obtain greater pleasures.This should give us an inkling that the true nature of the human soul is bliss. In thestate of embodied existence, this true nature of bliss is hampered. There arelimitations of the body, limitations of the senses. There are defects imposed uponus, such as heat and cold, hunger and thirst, discomfort and disease. There aremental afflictions such as sorrow, bereavement and dejection, separation from thosewhom we love, contact of those whom we dislike or fear, anxiety, disillusionment, jealousy, frustration, etc. All these factors in this embodied state veil our truenature — we are ourselves all-bliss. But, despite all this, we ever seek unconsciouslyto assert our true hidden higher nature. Thus, the individual exercises his facultiesin order to obtain things which are calculated to promote the experience ofhappiness. Unfortunately he does not get happiness. Why? For a very simple reason.
