So long as the mind pursues satisfaction and not truth, it will never attain truth. Yogic samadhi is a form of satisfaction. Therefore the successful yogi may feel happy. But he does not know the meaning of life. The craving for gratification of some desire--whether it be the desire of flesh, fame, or God--enslaves man, makes him a dependent, and sets up a stone wall 'twixt him and truth.
