The best way to gain happiness is to choose God as the leader and guide. Then, He will guide and guard, from the heart itself. Emperor Shivaji once sent some persons from the court to Samartha Ramdas, his preceptor, with a large quantity of provisions - grains, clothes, sweets and vessels. Ramdas asked them, "For whom have you brought these and why?" They replied, "For you. You have no one who can provide for you, and so, Shivaji Maharaj has sent all this." Ramdas laughed and said, "I have providence itself to provide for me; God alone has no one to provide for Him. Ask Shivaji to send these things to God!"
