That happiness is which the seeker attains to,
by
spiritual discipline
by
concentrating his or her mind on the cherished goal
and
this happiness is therefore a destroyer of griefs.

Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:

“Now listen to me,
O the best of Bharat,
on the three kinds of happiness,
including the felicity,
which one comes to dwell in,

by
practice
and
thus achieves cessation of griefs.”

“That happiness which is at first like poison
but finally tastes like nectar,
for it issues forth from the lucidity of an intellect
that has realized the Self,
is
of an impeccable nature.”

The happiness that is come by through spiritual exercise,
concentration of mind on the desired end,
and
in which all griefs come to an end,
is
bitter like venom
at
the commencement of worship.

Prahlad was hanged and Meera was poisoned.

Sant Kabir has pointed out the difference
between the pleasure-loving world,
that
feasts and fails into unconscious slumber,
and
himself
who stays awake shedding tears of contrition.

But although this happiness is like poison at the outset,
at the end it is like nectar
that
confers the substance of immortality.
Such happiness,
born out of a clear understanding of the Self,
is
said to be pure.

HE adds:

“That happiness which springs
from
the association of the senses with their objects,

and
which is like nectar at the beginning

but
like gall at the end,
is
said to be tainted

with
passion and moral blindness.”

The happiness obtained from the contact of the senses
with their objects tastes like nectar in the course of enjoyment
but like poison at the end,
for this kind of happiness leads to repeated birth and death.
So such happiness is rightly said to be impassioned
and
afflicted with
moral blindness.

And then:

“That happiness which both initially and finally
beguile the Self,
and
which arises

from slumber, lethargy, and negligence,
is
said

to be of the nature
of
ignorance.”

The happiness which both in the course of indulgence
and
subsequently, deludes the Soul,
lays one unconscious in the dark night of worldly life,
and
which is born out of indolence and futile efforts,
is
of the nature
of
ignorance.

Happiness lies in God
and
the intuitive perception of that Supreme Spirit
is
knowledge.

The man who has renounced desire
for the pleasure of objects of the external world
attains to felicity of God.
His Self is united with the God
and
the resulting happiness is therefore eternal.
But this happiness comes only to him
who is unattached to worldly pleasures.

Nothing is superior to the happiness that comes to this yogi,
for this is the happiness that results from identity with God;
and
this ultimate bliss comes only to that man
who
is
perfectly at peace in his heart and mind,
free from sin,
and
whose property of passion
and
moral blindness has been subdued.

Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:

“The most sublime happiness
is
the lot of the Yogi

whose mind is at peace,
who is free from evil,
whose passion and moral blindness have been dispelled
and
who has become one with God.”
