Every living entity of God is ananda-maya. Just like you see Krsna’s picture is ananda-maya: He is enjoying. Here is the picture. He is enjoying. He is playing flute with the company of Srimati Radharani. He is enjoying. He is young man. This is the real form of God — ananda-maya. God hasn’t got to till the ground for eating or make any business or any profession. So you can get also the same position along with God. You can go to Krsna also, dance with Him, enjoy with Him. Ananda-mayo ‘bhyasat [Vedanta-sutra 1.1.12]. By nature God and the living entities are enjoying, joyful. So unless you come to that position of joyfulness, you must know that if you are diseased, you cannot enjoy life.
