What is Happiness?
Happiness & Sorrows are nothing but “effects” of your past action. So, life is “cause & effect”. there is no god. god is nothing but simply upholding good qualities, so a human can become a god.
There has been great wars, pains and sorrows in the past and it will be in future. However, there was no god who came down to earth to rescue you. One time India’s great warrior Ashoka, also couldn’t find happiness in winning all small states.
Siddhartha Buddha after attaining enlightenment, he just enjoyed 2 weeks in that state blissfully. But it was also temporarily. He found “true happiness” only in helping people to liberate like him.
Buddha attained Nirvana through meditation. His very last words were,
“Behold, O monks, this is my last advice to you. All component things in the world are changeable. They are not lasting. Work diligently for your own salvation.”
