When I Asked God for Happiness
He Showed Me Some Unhappy People

When I Asked God for Brain & Brawn
He Gave Me Puzzles in Life to Solve

When I Asked God for Strength
He Gave Me Difficult Situations to Face

When I Asked God for Wealth
He Showed Me How to Work Hard

When I Asked God for Favors
He Showed Me Opportunities to Work Hard

When I Asked God for Peace
He Showed Me How to Help Others

God Gave Me Nothing I Wanted
He Gave Me Everything I Needed

"Tribhirgunamayairbhavairebhih Sarvamidam Jagat
Mohitam Nabhijanati Mamebhyah Paramavyayam"

The whole world is engrossed in the three elements of Satva, Raja, and Tama. This is the reason, people don't recognize the Eternal God who is beyond them.
