How to attain the goal of life? reveals us Swami Vishwananda

  • The goal of life is to attain happiness, to attain eternal bliss.
  • And this is what mankind is here for. The rest is just secondary. But
  • nowadays, people have placed God in the second, even third position,
  • while other [worldly] expectations are shining beautifully – as
  • number one! Misery dresses itself so beautifully that it can make
  • you get trapped in it. And the moment you get trapped in it, She is
  • happy. Maya Devi is very powerful, because She traps everything,
  • everybody gets trapped in it.
  • Even saints get trapped in it, but the saints know their goal. The yogis,
  • the sadhus, the persons who are enlightened, they know their
  • goal, they know what they want. They know what is real, what they
  • desire inside of themselves. This is what is real: to show what you
  • really want, what your heart wants; to listen deep inside of you, to
  • be free from the misery of this world. I don’t mean that you have to
  • die. You can become a jivan mukti. You can live in this world but, at
  • the same time, not be a part of this world. Then you can have happiness.
  • You will discover it, you will enjoy it, you will know about it.
  • For that, there are many ways. There’s prayer, which helps to calm
  • the mind. There’s bhajan singing, which will give you bliss; you can
  • lose yourself in it, you develop bhakti inside you. But still, this is
  • not fulfilment. It’s through meditation that you can really come
  • to the power of complete fulfilment. When the prayer, when this
  • bhajan singing makes you lose its aspect of witness to the outside,
  • when you lose yourself and forget about everything, forget even
  • about you being the body, you see that you have become One – with
  • eternity, with God. You have attained your own realisation. This
  • is how great saints, great prophets have taught mankind about it.
