There is mangala or an auspicious air about happiness that is characterized by dignity and purity.
One must be cheerful all the time and not keep growling at people on the slightest pretext. This in itself is extremely helpful, to radiate happiness wherever we go and exude auspiciousness. It is better than making lavish gifts and throwing money about.
To do a job with a feeling of lightness is anayasa.
To be light ourselves, creating joy wherever we go, is mangala.
We must be like a lamp spreading light and should never give cause for people to say, “Oh! He has come to find fault with everything.”
Wherever we go we must create a sense of happiness.
We must live auspiciously and make sure that there is happiness brimming over everywhere.
