Today is the sixth annual International Day of Happiness, first started by the UN and observed on March 20th around the world. I find inspiration for growing happiness in the poems, quotes, prayers and aphorisms of Sri Chinmoy.
Here are a few that provide a spiritual and wise perspective on the subject of happiness.
Be happy, divinely happy.
In your divine happiness
Is your unimaginable progress.
Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 236.
Those who run after happiness
Will never be happy.
Happiness is something
That has to come to the fore
Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, Part 41.
