This is valuable collection of a few articles written by Nityalilalina Poojya Sri Hanumanprasadji Poddar, the founder-editor of the ‘Kalyan’. The articles first appeared in the Kalyan and they were rendered into English by a devoted associate of Sri Poddarji, the late Pt. Sri Chimmanlalji Goswami, the editor of the ‘Kalyan-Kalpataru’, and English magazine published by the Gita Press.

Eternal happiness is a misnomer in worldly parlance. In fact the world itself and all that it comprises is ephemeral and transient. Rather, according to savants like the great Sankaracharya it is not transient, but non-existent; its existence in only illusory.
God alone is eternal, who is described as Sachchidananda-swarupa-the embodiment of Sat (existence), Chit (Knowledge) and Ananda (Bliss). Bliss is happiness. In this wise eternal happiness is synonymous with Godhead. The attainment of eternal happiness is tantamount to God-Realization.

Sri Poddarji was an achieved soul of the highest order. He attained eternal happiness and lived in i. He did not shut himself up with his enlightenment in an ivory-tower, but sought to shed the light of his attainment around him for the benefit of all.

We are confident that all seekers of real happiness and travelers on the path of true spirituality would find these writings immensely helpful and valuable.
