Why do we seek bliss? It is intrinsic to our nature to seek happiness. We are tiny fragments of that ocean of bliss which is the vast reservoir of happiness that is why it is our soul nature to seek bliss.
The thirst for happiness is not satiated till we get the bliss of God. We, embodied soul seek happiness in the material realm but the happiness that will satiate us is not in the world but in God. Soul by nature is blissful.

Swamiji talks about the science of neuroplasticity, in which when we repeat a thought again and again it creates a channel of thoughts in the mind. Repeated contemplation over an object that this will give me joy or I will get happiness out of it creates a channel of thoughts in the mind which leads to attachment. This attachment leads to desire. How to channelize our desire in the right direction?

Repeated contemplation of happiness in the objects of the world leads to worldly attachments. Worldly attachments binds us, while attachment in the divine realm elevates us. What will give us that happiness which our soul is seeking?
Swamiji gives us a simple solution by Ved Vyas in Bhagavatam, what is that solution listen to the whole clip to know it. Make anger your friend, use it as an impetus to rise further. How?
