Now what is the means to happiness? The answer to happiness is – having the aim of attaining the sentient Paramatma (God, Supreme Being) and lawful and righteous conduct (according to Dharma). The purport is that when our conduct is according to Dharma and when we have no desire to get anything else besides that which is gained lawfully according to our rights, then only real happiness can be attained. This takes place when one renounces and becomes generous.
If we renounce those things that we think will give us happiness, and want to generously give these to others, and at the same time we do not wish to take anything from them, then those things will on their own become abundant and the takers will become few. At that time, as fruit of our generosity, the divine powers will complete their work, by which things will be abundantly produced and protected. In this way, happiness will spread in the entire universe.
