Once upon a time, there was a boy, and all he wanted was to be happy. He didn't know where to find that fountain of joy, so he started traveling all over the world. He went from his motherland to Africa's exotic regions, like the Sahara and the Kalahari Deserts, and finding no everlasting happiness there, moved on to the mighty lands of Asia, especially to the Himalayas. In spite of what he had read, no permanent bliss was found there either. Suddenly, when he was on his lowest moment, when he was about to give up, he had a stunning insight: 'I've been searching in the wrong places! Happiness must be in me, not outside!' He went back home, sit still, and without giving attention to his old companion, the mind, realized his own eternal nature as the deathless pure awareness. What happened next? Heaven on Earth.
