Swami Ramakrishnananda has said that the solution of a problem does not mean release from it, for out of that solution new problems arise. Hence, one must root out all problems by rousing God-consciousness.
Spiritual solution can be the only lasting solution to the problem of suffering. This book points to the various ways in which eternal bliss can be achieved.
The articles, though having a common theme were written during a span of more than fifteen years. They are independent in themselves and can be read independently as well.
First, there are the articles on the goal of human life; next the subject of happiness followed by the problem of suffering are discussed. Finally, various spiritual techniques are described.
It is a common experience that a single. Isolated and alienated person is never happy. By service, we identify with others. It breaks our egoistic limitations and makes us expand. We find ourselves among our own people everywhere.
To make others our own through love, service and help, is the method taught by the holy mother to attain peace, happiness and bliss, the day we would actually realize that no one is a stranger, and all are our own, that day we shall be the happiest. He is the happiest person who actually feels that none is a stranger, none is an enemy and that all are his own.
