Originally published in 2014, this is a message I felt bears repeating.
In our current commercialized culture, we're constantly bombarded with messages aimed at convincing us that happiness comes from experiences and from things. Of course, a certain amount of good feeling comes when we attain a goal or experience pleasure. But the good feeling doesn't last. Life has constant ups and downs. So, if our happiness is dependent on the world, then we live on an emotional roller coaster.
According to the great Yoga Sages, there is another type of happiness. This is a happiness that is not dependent on things or circumstances and is lasting. This is a happiness that fills us even when things are not going our way. The Sages say that such joy is of the very nature of our Soul.
We are happy to announce that the SRSG Ashram teachers – Adhikari Bhoi, Ramprakash Das, Jay Prakash Bahuguna, and Pandit Deepak Chandra are coming together to offer our Indian community a number of insightful programmes in Hindi. As India battles the covid-19 pandemic, these programmes are curtailed to provide inspiration and support to our fellow Hindi speaking brothers and sisters over the next several months.
