Those who take pleasure
Those who take pleasure in grief and do not fear from any criticism, attain the blessings of the Supreme Lord.
Every pleasure has been so momentary, has left your hand empty, depleted, drained. And every pleasure has brought you more depression, sorrow, pulled you down. But yet there is a hope of some pleasure, some unknown, unseen pleasure. Dreaming of a pleasure that makes you weak, that holds you back.
Pleasure is a sin, and sometimes sin is a pleasure. – Lord Byron
Freedom from the pleasure is the real pleasure. Pain does not bind you; it is the pleasure that binds you. And the bondage is painful. If you are bound, you are not bound by misery, you are bound by your craving, your pleasure.
Pleasure for one hour, a bottle of wine. Pleasure for one year a marriage; but pleasure for a lifetime, a garden. -Chinese Proverb
A man who is truly devoted to Lord, gets ultimate happiness and attains the blessings of Supreme Lord.
One who, at the time of death, fixes his life air between the eyebrows and, by the strength of yoga, with an undeviating mind, engages himself in remembering the Supreme Lord in full devotion, will certainly attain to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.(8.10)
Giving love to all, feeling the love of God, seeing his presence in everyone, is the way to attain blessings of Supreme Soul.
One, who can control his desires, attains the blessings of the Supreme Lord.
Do not let pleasure distract you from meditation, from the way. Free yourself from pleasure and pain. – Buddha
