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.
