Amma's Full Moon (Pournami) Message: 28-04-2010:
"Om Sarva Mangala Mangalye,
Shive Sarvatha Shaadhike,
Sharanye Triambake Gowri,
Human beings have a world of desires and with that they look forward to living a happy life. Everyone likes to be happy. It is a feeling of happiness when one feels satisfied. There are different types of happiness and everyone has the choice to be happy. While some feel happiness in being able to sleep another could find happiness in reading. Similarly while some find happiness in eating, others may find happiness in drinking or saving money.
· What one may consider to be happiness may not truly be happiness
· What one may think will bring happiness may not give you happiness in all aspects of life
Drinking liquor may give a false sense of happiness. But does the liquor do any good? No, it affects the health; it distorts your senses and makes a person weak. When one gets into a habit of drinking the family gets adversely affected and ultimately the children suffer. When one likes bad habits, these habits bring unhappiness and distress to themselves and others too. The happiness that one experiences is only temporary, it is not permanent happiness.
Others who want to save money continue to accumulate more and more money. They don't spend to enjoy what they saved. Till the end one will keep asking for more and more but will not feel satisfied in what he has. This temporary happiness may overshadow the unhappiness waiting to come.
So what is Happiness? Does this worldly life have any permanent happiness? Any thing that gives happiness to you and happiness to others as well is a true happiness. You must do "Dharma", you must help others. When you do "Dharma" you are happy and the person who receives is also happy. Doing "Dharma" to any extent will give you ultimate happiness "Anandam".
In human life "Anandam" is more important than happiness. When you say happiness it is only for you. It might also give sorrow to others. The happiness you like and feel must be extended to others this happiness also translates into what is called PUNYA DHARMA & GOOD KARMA. The normal happiness that an individual gets, may not give him peace. It may give lot of difficulties and interfere with the peace within him. Therefore stay away from the things that give you temporary happiness and seek the things that give you ultimate happiness "Anandam".
Life is complete in all respects when we live happily and make others equally happy. We must take a resolution to live with the kind of happiness derived from making others happy. All good things we get must be shared with those who do not have it. Such a life will give you fulfillment and it will give you the ultimate happiness and the divine life.
Life should be lived in the true sense. Devotion to God helps one to lead such a life. Therefore Amma blesses you all to remain happy and take a resolution to keep others happy.
-Sri Sakthi Amma
