Would you kindly define the nature of Ananda?
Ananda is a thing to be felt — it cannot be defined except negatively that it is not mere joy, but something much more deep and essential.
My physical consciousness does not seem to be ready to receive love and Ananda properly.
The quiet and calm have to be increased so as to be a firm basis for the love and Ananda.
How is it that I have suddenly lost the state of Ananda and love that I was experiencing before?
In order to keep it the whole system must become calm, quiet and free from demands.
