Happiness is based on right understanding

It is like the story written by Leo Tolstoy: A king wanted to have forever happiness. He consulted with his officers how to achieve it. He was advised to find a happy man, take his shirt and put it on, he will be endlessly happy. The king sent his men to look for the happy man, but they failed, until they were passing by a small hut and heard someone say: my job is done for today, I can eat and sleep well. I am happy now; what more do I want? The king’s men asked that man about his shirt for the king. He said, ‘I am so poor that I have no shirt, sir.’ They reported the story to the king. The king understood that, happiness didn’t depend on the materiality. It’s true, the real happiness is based on right understanding, it is not on materiality.
