Devotion is the key that unlocks the gates of eternal truth.
When these words are uttered, the first person who hears the prayer is myself.
I am suggesting to myself, I am praying to myself, "May all be happy," - which means I should not make anyone unhappy, and, if possible, I should work for the happiness, peace, health and prosperity of everyone I come into contact with.
It is necessary to distinguish ambition from action.
Action is natural, inherent in life; just as "eating" (and therefore hunger) is natural to all living beings.
But ambition is not natural, even as "craving for chocolate" is not natural.
