The seventh chapter of the Chandogya Upanishad is the famous dialogue between the great sage Sanatkumara and his younger brother, turned disciple, Narada.
 
Narada approaches Sanatkumara, saying that he knows all the Vedas and ancillary literature, but still has not overcome sorrow. Naradji being such an exalted sage, despite possessing all types of secular knowledge, how come he was still not experiencing everlasting joy?
 
Is it not that to be fulfilled and successful one should be expert in some worldly subject?
 
We have expertise, technology, qualifications to enhance our so-called standard of living, and yet with a gush of some situation we fall into a pitiful sorrowful state. Therefore one should ask the question - Is there a knowledge that is existing which can lead me to eternal fulfilment and effortless joy?
