Which Is the Right Path is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Kolkata, India on the morning of 1978 November 5. This discourse is the eleventh chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 4.[1]

Synopsis

Parents hate to see their children weep. If they do, they take them on their lap and comfort them with love and affection until their tears stop. You will have to build a society in which no one is forced to weep, where everyone smiles joyfully all the time and gets ample scope for laughter. Seeing such mirth and merriment, Parama Puruśa will feel immensely pleased. By giving joy to Parama Puruśa you will feel even more joyful and will feel His close proximity.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that common people find it hard to distinguish among the many philosophies and determine which is the path that leads to all-round welfare. Anandamurti then describes the absurdity of theories based on impractical ideas and various scriptures that mislead common people to think that God discriminates between one and another, thereby encouraging abuse and separation. Anandamurti goes on saying that the root of dharma is Parama Purusa. All entities find their shelter within His mind. To serve all is the right social code. To hold the thought of Him ever awake in the mind is the true spiritual code. Parama Purusa never wants to see anyone unhappy.[1]
