Read the full quote from Bodhisattva Yoga founder Vivekan below:
“There is no contradiction with the outside weather being gloomy by description and yet inside there is a certain kind of radiance, a certain effulgence, from our inner glow. In Sanskrit that would be called Prakasha. And that is what really shines bright when we are in Ananda (bliss)… When we are experiencing higher states of Sukha (ease), beyond the comfort and ease states of Sukha, when we are embodying Virya – the noble form of zeal. When we do this we become that individual that’s embodying that exhortation from Buddha, i.e., to delight in existence.
And if your motivation is to be of benefit to beings, a lot of people clip their own wings by wondering how will I benefit beings?
When really, it’s delighting in existence… Just simply being a person who is more happy in nature, more light, and that shouldn’t have to mean that the sun is out… Because in New York, that’s about one third of the year!”
