Happiness is inside

We offer you a new and visionary poem by Swami Vishnudevananda, of the book Upadesa. Teachings of Swami Vishnudevananda, available in the Centre International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta in Madrid.

Vishnu devananda


-Ananda, Bliss - happiness is not outside,

It is on the inside.

When looking for happiness on the outside is a vacuum.

Is like the woman who accidentally dropped his needle,

leaves and begins to seek her out.

Passing by there her friend asks: "what are you doing?"

"Ah, is that I lost my needle and I'm looking for it."

"Where lost it?"

"I lost it in my hut."

"And then why you are seeking it out?"

"I am seeking it out because there is more light."

This is exactly what happens to us all.

The Kingdom of heaven is within us

but we think that it is somewhere in Las Vegas, New York or London.
