Who is Happy?

In a lecture Srila Prabhupada quoted something from a Shakespearean play. Srila Prabhupada said, “I think there is a line in Shakespeare’s literature, “The lunatic, mad, and the poet” or something like that, “all compact in thought.” The Bhaktivedanta Archives researched and found this quote came from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act V, Scene I: “The lunatic, the lover, and the poet, are of imagination all compact.” The nearest Srimad Bhagavatam verse I could find on this topic is 3.7.17: yas ca mudhatamo loke yas ca buddheh param gatah tav ubhau sukham edhete klisyaty antarito janah Srila Prabhupada’s translation: “Both the lowest of fools and he who is transcendental to all intelligence enjoy happiness, whereas persons between them suffer the material pangs.”
