  2. Where Is Happiness?

    Where Is Happiness?

    What is the Happiness Realized and Revealed by Avatar Adi Da, and how is it different from happiness as it is conventionally experienced, enjoyed, and yearned for?

    What are the mechanisms, structures, and activities (or the “method”) of un-Happiness that obstruct the Realization of Happiness Itself? How is it possible to understand and transcend these obstructions and thereby “Locate” Happiness as our real present Condition?

    Why is the function of the Realizer essential for anyone who is serious about these questions? What is the unique advantage of the devotional relationship to Avatar Adi Da?

    These are some of the important questions addressed in this introduction to the “radical” Teaching of Avatar Adi Da.
