“Real happiness is to make others happy”


[Personal Interviews with Baba: A young woman]

Q. What must I do for a better life with my mother, who does not approve of what I do ?

Baba: Think more of her, and less of yourself. That will adjust matters, because even if you think at times that your mother is in the wrong, and you are in the right, or that sometimes she is in the right, and you are in the wrong, still it matters little if you think of her. In short, think less of yourself and more of others. Real happiness is to make others happy.
