The Jewels of Happiness is a website about inner happiness. This happiness does not depend on outer circumstances – places, people, money or success – but wells up spontaneously from within. Outer happiness eventually fades away, but inner happiness is lasting and fulfilling!


ckgOur site draws its inspiration from Sri Chinmoy, a spiritual teacher who was also a poet, author, artist, musician and athlete – a true ‘renaissance man’ whose timeless wisdom and boundless creative output have inspired millions.
