Many Paths to One God

Attaining Unlimited Happiness

by Sankarshan Das Adhikari

This human form of life is not meant for simply amassing money, power, and prestige. We are meant to achieve to the ultimate platform of self-realization, Krishna consciousness, and thus completely transcend the repeated miseries experienced in the cycle of birth and death. 

Often people wonder how they will be able to adopt the necessary disciplines to advance properly in spiritual life. They feel that it is something impossible, beyond their reach. They do not understand how they could possibly squeeze something else into their already stressed out existence. What they don't realized is that it is simply a matter of proper realization, of proper understanding. 

Once you understand what is actually going on beneath the thin veneer of the material energy you will naturally focus your life's energies for achieving the ultimate goal. In this connection the following profound advice was given thousands of years ago by the great king of India, Rsabhadeva to his sons:

rsabha uvaca
nayam deho deha-bhajam nrloke
kastan kaman arhate vid-bhujam ye
tapo divyam putraka yena sattvam
suddhyed yasmad brahma-saukhyam tv anantam

"Lord Rsabhadeva told His sons: My dear boys, of all the living entities who have accepted material bodies in this world, one who has been awarded this human form should not work hard day and night simply for sense gratification, which is available even for dogs and hogs that eat stool. One should engage in penance and austerity to attain the divine position of devotional service. By such activity, one's heart is purified, and when one attains this position, he attains eternal, blissful life, which is transcendental to material happiness and which continues forever."

Srimad Bhagavatam 5.5.1
