Why should one aim for attainment of the Moksha rather than heaven?
There is only happiness in heaven and it has absolutely no trace of unhappiness. In every happiness experienced on earth there is at least some part of unhappiness. One experiences happiness after eating one sweet dish, (e.g. a ladu) but if one eats 20 of them one develops a stomach ache or suffers from diarrhoea. This implies that in eating every sweet dish there is 1/20th part of unhappiness hidden in it.One experiences continuous happiness in heaven. As against this, on earth events which give happiness and unhappiness occur alternately. Click here to read more.
