Unhappiness defined

An eight year old child was sitting on the grass lawns of the Indian Gymkhana in King's Circle, Mumbai. He had accompanied his father to a discourse by Advaita teacher Swami Chinmayananda.

And in the cool winter night scented with the heady fragrance of green grass, this is what he heard Swamiji say:

Unhappiness is Desires divided by Desires Fulfilled.
