The happiness of spiritual bliss is the highest and everlasting – Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

While the momentary happiness obtained from the world ultimately pushes you into the throes of never-ending sorrow, spiritual pain uplifts you to the abode of everlasting bliss and peace.

Pain in the beginning is the price you have to pay for the happiness you enjoy in life. Even in a worldly sense, the intensity of the pain or sacrifice you have to undergo, varies according to the measure of happiness you seek. But the happiness of spiritual bliss is the highest and most everlasting. Therefore, it is very expensive, and in order to attain it, you need to give up the lower and less pleasure-giving things.

In order to gain pure love and the highest form of bliss, one has to undergo purification. Purification is heating up the mind in order to remove all impurities and this process inevitably involves pain.
