Happiness is LSD !!!

Switching through channels about 20 minutes ago, I stumbled upon this wonderful show called Business Sutra on CNBC TV 18 (which I watch occassionally), where the remarkable Dr. Devdutt Pattanaik links our mythology and customs to business fundas in a wonderful way (The hyperlink also has links to the episodes of Business Sutra  in case you are interested). And the line that caught my attention was - Happiness = LSD !!! And here, LSD is not Love, Sex aur Dhokha ( which by the way is the best Hindi movie of the year so far :D). Instead, LSD stands for Lakshmi, Saraswati and Durga - 3 of the most important Goddesses in Hinduism.
He then goes on to telling that Lakshmi represents material wealth/ happiness, Saraswati represents intellect, knowledge etc and Durga represents our emotional wealth/ state of mind. And how, Lakshmi is fully measurable, Saraswati - partially measurable and Durga is not measurable at all....
The bottom line being that Happiness is a combination of things, only parts of which are measurable; some factors will forever remain immeasurable at all times.
Fascinating stuff and a line of thought which had never occurred to me. So just wanted to share with this my friends.
