SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR

Grading happiness is a concept crucial and pivotal to take simple practical steps to make proper choices for assertion, reinforcement and thus maximizing our success and/or happiness throughout our life.

The practical steps
Do not take up activities inadvertently (without grading) with the hope of happiness or success, just because they are ordained or advised by some one somewhere. Please realize that happiness is a relative term. What makes one person happy; may make another sad. Hence trying to do things according to some prescription; may not make you happy and actually; may prove counterproductive!

Hence there is a need to learn some general criteria or parameters to grade happiness.

The first criterion is durability.

The second criterion is how many people you can share the happiness with.

The third criterion is the intensity of the happiness.

A grade happiness (e.g. of the saint) is so much durable that it lasts for millennia, involves millions of people and it is so intense that we are completely involved in it.

B grade happiness (e.g. that of scientists or reformers), where the happiness is durable but eternal, shared with many people; but not the "have not” category; and it could be intense disturbable by other factors.

C grade happiness could be that of cocktail parties and other escapist activities

D grade happiness could be born out of material possessions or other successes in petty pursuits

E grade could be happiness in harming others to a greater or lesser extent followed by sense guilt or fear.

F, G, H and even lower grades of happiness born out of heinous crimes. These could be defined; but are left to the readers' discretion.
