Roadmaps to joy!

Happiness is the ultimate goal in life

 The goal

All your actions in this world, weather eating food, getting married, or having children, homes or friends, are an attempt to find happiness. But do they give you happiness? They offer the best of joys--- for a moment--- but they do not give you everlasting joy. You find their joy, and then return again to the same world of conflict, sadness sorrow, and worry. Human union gives you a joy that is only a glimpse, a foretaste of something higher, which is everlasting.

~ Swami Rama, Transcending desires and purifying the sanskaras, Art of Joyful living
