What is the key to live in real happiness?

People today crave for material comforts and luxury.

From luxury, you will only get diseases!

Understand that money is of no help in developing good qualities. Sacrifice alone can develop noble qualities within you. Indeed through sacrifice, you can get bliss and eternal joy.

Many people shift to cities in pursuit of comfort and luxuries, and find themselves in multitude of difficulties and sorrow. This is their own making.

In fact, city life defiles true culture in all possible ways and you can never obtain happiness from happiness. It is only through suffering can you derive happiness.

To make your life happy, you must undertake selfless service. The ancient culture is most preserved in villages than in cities and towns. Hence, go to villages, find out their needs and alleviate their suffering.

Hands that serve are always holier than lips that pray.

- Divine Discourse 1 Jan 2004.

Remember that whomsoever you may serve, you are serving the Divine.

When is serving humanity equal to service to the Divine ?

Many state that service to humanity is service to the Divine. It is true.

Although the service of humanity is holy, unless it is merged in the bigger ideal of divinity in everyone, people won’t benefit, however huge the service.

Quoting the slogan is useless if service is done with an eye on name and fame and the fruits of one’s action. Only when you constantly contemplate on the Divine, follow true and righteous means in execution, and work with faith in the essential divinity ople, then the service to humanity truly becomes service to Him.

Without thoughts of the Divine, how can service to Him originate? All such talk is mere show. In fact, those who are immersed in the uninterrupted contemplation of the Lord, need not do any other task at all.

The fruit of their prayer itself can make the world holy. However, all can’t be thus engaged, so others must prepare for that stage by purifying their mind and diminishing their desires.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 71.

Remember that whomsoever you may serve, you are serving the Divine.
