Happiness is not in Acquisition. Happiness is in inner realization.
– Radhanath Swami
Nice quote by Radhanath Swami. To be contented and not hankering for the glittering externalities is a greatest quality and this can be developed through sincere spiritual practices.
Nature of soul is to Love
Very nice quote
Nice definition of happiness….
This can be used to explain to the intellectual youth what is real happiness and the right way to strive for it.
such a deep and profound thought. will share with my friends on social media. thnx
Powerful definition of what is real happiness!
If one understands this, all will be self satisfied with whatever they have..no more egoistic competitions…thank you Maharaj..
very rightly said … 🙂
Yes very true, happiness is not in things….
Yes..that is what probably most of us have experienced. We keep on acquiring for many things without aim of its utilization in proper directinon..This is I am saying for any thing..may be money or knowledge or something which we like it. But the day when we realize that what I have done upto now has no meaning or no use of such acquired material, than we lament for our efforts. So we need to learn that just keep on gathering material is not going to give us any satisfaction but real peace may only come through realization. Realization to use everything in service of the Lord and humanities to spread the same realization. H H Radhanath Swami has explained such deep understanding with simple words.
well said Mr Raju. if we start understanding the right applications, world will be in the direction. Today people just equate money to happiness, which is not true. I have friends who are millionaires and they are miserable, they have unstable relationships, broken marriages.
True.If you see the life of Radhanath Swami Maharaj, he has been against all odds. Yet he is always blissful
Yea.. nice observation about HH Radhanath Swami, he has practiced the art of staying the same same in all odds in life.
Yes very true.
Very very deep and profound. I suppose this is one of the fundamental concepts of spiritual education. People try to acquire more and more material things, but they are never satisfied. One thing leads to another and the greed never stops. since we are all “spirit souls” and not these bodies and our constitutional position to serve others and especially God, material things will never bring happiness which is lasting and fulfilling. If this was not true, all the rich people in the world would be happy, which is not the case. Only when we serve others, do we get inner fulfillment. Only when we go deep within, trying to understand who we are, what is our relation to God and what is my duty, then we can realise the inner secret of our happiness. Thank you Maharaj for the profound thought.
Cool. Through service only it is possible to attain inner realization which is the source of Happiness and not the acquisition of material things.
Thank you very much for sharing this!
Beautiful quote! There is no use of trying to find happiness externally by acquiring things!
