Hare Krsna, AGTSP.
What is happiness and distress in this material world? Why does it come to a person? Is it only result of past karma? Can we with our endeavours control the happiness and distress that comes upon us or is it fixed during our birth? If the material happiness is only an illusion, then why do we feel it? If person reliazes that he is not this body completely, will he be able to get above the dualities of happiness and pain?
"Any distress (dukha) comes to a person because of his attachment to something." How true is this?
