Every one of us wants to be happy. In fact every moment we strive hard to achieve happiness but most often we find that in spite of achieving all what we had desired to achieve we still remain unhappy. The Supreme Personality of Godhead is sac-cid-ananda-vigraha i.e. eternal, blissful and full of knowledge. We being parts and parcel of the Lord we also have desire for eternity, bliss and knowledge. Every jiva be it in Svargloka, brahmaloka, bhuvarloka etc. wants to be happy. The level of happiness which one enjoys in the heavenly planets is far greater than what we enjoy on earth. On earth also there is difference in the level of enjoyment which one may experience in a western country than in India.
In spite of striving hard to achieve happiness people never get the bliss which they dream, they never feel inner satisfaction, inner fulfillment and inner joy. Why is it so? Suppose we take a fish out of water and put it in a golden jar then will the fish be happy? Definitely ‘No’. Fish is happy only in water and not out of water. Similarly we are spiritual beings and we will be happy only when we get connected to Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and return back to our original home which is the spiritual world.
