I had the privilege of spending some of my childhood time with the Sri Ramana Rishi of Thiruvanamalai It is needless to say HE WAS A SAINTHe was a realised soul He searched and found the answer successfully for the question \"Who Am I ?\" Before he attained Maha Samadhi,he was cheerful as always he used to be ,though he had malignant cancer As he was a JIWAN MUKHTHI-- a saint of ALL BLISS- he never for a moment expressed suffering on account of cancerHe must have had unbearable pain but his face remained cheerful to the end Can we say this as \" Happiness is the end of pains?\" For a jiwan mukthi pairs of opposite has no effect at all.They don\'t find difference between pain and pleasure,loss and gain,Heat and cold, Sorrow and happiness., friend and foes Regards

Happy moments have been many more than the painful ones...but not as deep. It is important to value all moments in our lives and take from them all the pleasure and lessons that we can and tuck them away into our hearts.

No, I saw a person with severe pain from cancer was happy watching a telugu comedy movie of Rajendra Prasad. Happyness is a mental situation, pains can be physical as well as mental.

Happiness is only a delight or pleasure that we feel inside of us at any particular time brought on by circumstances that are either progressive or immediate in our environment. It need not necessarily be the end of pains. Pain could originate from reasons which could be even unrelated to us and yet come to visit on us in a indirect way, and even affecting us to bring pain. It is how we deal with that pain, that brings the state of mind of happiness in us to live the present chosen by a path that we know is going to be ultimately beneficial to us.

Yes but depends on the duration of that happiness.. .. but the certainty of not repeating the sorrows is the end of all pains!!

Could be!.............Happy moments have been many more than the painful ones...but not as deep. So if you reflect judiciously, you can see the balance.
