Swami Tapovanam Musings

Let your mind delight immersing in the thought of God. That is the goal. That is the never waning happy state. That is the ultimate object of birth in human form. All good deeds, reading and listening to holy lives, contact with saintly people etc, all serve to achieve the end. Once it is gained there is nothing more to be gained.
Sitting in solitude Sannyasin mahatmas find supreme joy in the Lord.
Living in the midst of social life householder mahatmas find joy in the supreme Self. To them transactions of daily life bring no happiness. Yet they engage themselves in them as in a job carrying no reward or as in the sports of a child.
