The Upanishads were not composed to give you the normal kind of comfort and happiness. The Upanishads are there to give you an exalted happiness, a transcendental happiness, an eternal happiness. A happiness so rare and exquisite that it is not called as harṣa or moda or prasannatā ; a special word is needed to denote that happiness— ānanda .

It is a difficult happiness. It is a challenging happiness. It is a happiness that you must pay for. It is not that one of those cheap happiness that comes to you because somebody has tickled your tummy, or because your eyes have just landed upon some object you can lust at. Not that kind of your everyday happiness.
