A balance in body chemistry and psychic phenomena: that is happiness. Sukh, happiness, is a state the player attains through vivek, conscience, or by chanting Om, achieving samadhi and maintaining a positive intellect.

Sukh comes to the player when his conscience tells him that he is very near his goal, giving him the certainty that he is nearing liberation. The feeling he experiences is ineffable, beyond the power of words to describe. He feels the happiness of the river merging for the last time with the ocean after a thousand-mile journey, a feeling of merging with his source.

If in his state of happiness the player does not neglect his karmas and become lazy and inactive, there is a real chance of attaining Cosmic Consciousness within his lifetime. But if he is overwhelmed with the experience of happiness and fails to act, sensing his mission complete, the snake of tamas lurks just beside him, to swallow him and drain his energies back to the first chakra.

The game tells us he still needs a six to reach his goal, just as he needed six to take birth. But if he becomes lazy, if he feels there is nothing left for him to do, there lurk tamas and illusion.

True happiness is for the player who maintains his balance as he nears his goal. The game is important in its totality. His stable intellect enables him to discern patterns of flow, the current of dharma. He accepts whatever life presents to him. There is nothing he rejects. Even if he reaches the eighth plane and must come back again to earth, he feels the happiness that comes with knowing there is a goal that can be reached.


This artwork vibrantly encapsulates the concept of Happiness (sukh), featuring a dancing and laughing energy couple as the central figures, embodying the sheer joy and contentment of life. At the heart of the scene are the Om symbol, flowers, and nature, representing spiritual serenity and natural beauty.

The river that encircles the central elements symbolizes the flow of life and happiness. Around this river, various elements that signify happiness are thoughtfully incorporated. These include fruits representing abundance, the sun symbolizing warmth and vitality, butterflies and dolphins depicting the beauty and playfulness of nature, and children embodying innocence and joy. Musical instruments like the handpan, harmonium, and guitar, along with a person composing music on an Apple computer, highlight the harmony and creativity that music brings to our lives.

The artwork is replete with spiritual symbols, each contributing to the overarching theme of spiritual growth and enlightenment. The colors and composition create a vibrant and harmonious atmosphere, reflecting the multifaceted nature of happiness. This visual representation beautifully embodies the diverse aspects of life that bring joy, symbolizing the delight of living in harmony with nature, music, technology, and spiritual growth.



Sukh, a whisper on the breeze, a balance deep within,
Body's chemistry finds ease, where psychic waves begin.

Vivek's light, a guiding hand, or Om's vibration pure,
Samadhi's peace, a promised land, where happiness endures.

 Conscience whispers, soft and clear, "Your goal is near, my friend,"
A certainty that casts out fear, a journey that will end.

Like rivers merging with the sea, a thousand miles complete,
The source awaits, eternally, a blissful, sacred meet.
