What is happiness? What is distress?
Happiness and distress are concomitant factors of material life. One should learn to tolerate, as advised in Bhagavad-gita. One can never restrict the coming and going of happiness and distress, so one should be detached from the materialistic way of life and be automatically equipoised in both cases. Generally, when we get something desirable we are very happy, and when we get something undesirable we are distressed.
Can anyone answer this question? Have you treated life the same way when you were happy and when you were sad? Any experiences?
