Is not our life destination a kind of happiness , which we know the taste , which we taste on and off but it does not remain timeless , so we search in time through our senses ?
Lord Buddha had everything we desire through our senses yet wandered around for 6 years in search of this happiness , finally exhausted sit under a PIPAL tree , relaxes and tastes timeless happiness which many call enlightenment.
The secret of eternal happiness hidden in the tree’s name PIPAL so PI means drink and PAL means now , drink now is to live in present and present is a timeless dimension we all can taste but can not be explained .
living in present is the true happiness.
