Aloha, Namaste. On this most wonderful day of Janmashtami, where we celebrate the appearance of Lord Krishna, let us reflect on His love for each and every one of us, and how we can truly find happiness in serving Him.
We all want to be happy. And while we may try to find happiness in different ways, our desire to be happy is inherent within each of us. It is part of our spiritual nature.
The Supreme Lord, Sri Krishna is the reservoir of all happiness. So if we want to be happy, we need to be connected with Him. And he gives us so many ways to do this. By hearing His instructions through scripture, we can be connected with Him. By hearing of His pastimes when He appeared in this world some 5000 years ago, we can be connected with Him. By hearing and glorifying any of His countless names, we can be connected with Him. And by engaging our time, energy, and skills in the loving service of God and all His children, we can be connected with Him.
So if we want to be truly happy, all we need to do is think about how can we dedicate our actions, our lives, to pleasing God. Then we can actually achieve the highest happiness – a happiness that’s impossible to attain in any other way.
God is sometimes called Rama, which means “He who gives transcendental happiness or bliss to those who engage in His loving service.” This is the perfect solution to any unhappiness or purposelessness that we may be experiencing.
In my own life, I do my best to focus on how I can be pleasing to God – and what better way to make God happy than by working for the wellbeing of His children and Mother Earth. This has provided me with great happiness and a deep sense of fulfillment that’s impossible to find in any material endeavor.
So it’s my wish for each of you that you’ll experience such happiness today, and every day, in remembering, serving, and pleasing Sri Krishna.
Jaya Shri Krishna!
