We are here to give joy, happiness to everyone; to make everyone happy.  There are so many ways of making others happy.  I have found that we have to learn, also.  So many things we have to learn, how to make others happy.  And then when you make them happy, then you feel that joy within yourself: “Oh, they’re so happy!” See their happiness, then only this lotus opens out much more; like a ripple moves and moves to the end of the shores and then from the shore it returns back to you.  In the same way, when your joy reaches the joy of others, then the ripples that come up make a beautiful pattern of your life.
