Unhappy - an essential subject
Here, in this material world, everything is a false reality. Just like we are trying to find out water in the desert but there is no water. The animal thinks he sees that there is water, vast water, but while running after it he dies. So here in this material world also, every one of us, is running after the false mirage, that "There is happiness, there is happiness, there is happiness." This is very unfortunate, for the little drops of happiness that we experience in this world are really only little drops of relief from the large amount of unhappiness that we receive from the pressures of our body and mind, other living entities and from the material nature.
