Spiritual Hunger

hunger2

Every person is hungry for spiritual happiness and therefore many people are not satisfied. They are trying to gratify their senses in so many ways, but still they are not satisfied; they remain “hungry.” Just like when the child is crying. Its mother may be offering something, but the child is still crying. That means that the child is asking for something which the mother cannot understand. Similarly, the dissatisfaction of the world means that people are actually hankering for spiritual happiness. Every person is hungry for spiritual happiness. They are trying to gratify their senses in so many ways, but still they are not satisfied, because actually they are hungry. This type of happiness is seldom offered, and when it is offered, many do not understand it and do not take to it. This is the situation.
