The 4 Steps to Achieve the Store of Happiness
Step #1: Open a Store of Happiness by giving happiness to others whom we meet in our day-to-day interactions, especially starting from our home, our parents, our siblings, and at school - our teachers, friends, etc.
Step #2: We don't wish to hurt others, but we hurt others because we are hurt by others. Our chit is unhappy, making us see images of instances where we were hurt, resulting in us giving unhappiness to others. If we bring happy events before our chit then it is easy to give and share happiness with others from our Store of Happiness.
Step #3: The initial investment of our Store of Happiness is Prarthana (prayers), thereby showing them (the boys) in the morning - start the day by spreading happiness to all. Also, if we see negative attributes (weaknesses, bad habits, etc) we, without getting disturbed, starting praying to the inner soul residing in that person with full positive bhaav (inner intent) to free him/her from that negative attribute. Also the meaning of 'bhaav partisthat' as Pujyashree explains in satsangs was conveyed to the youth and the importance of living with a positive attitude.
Step #4: Despite our wish to spread only happiness, we still tend to hurt others by our mind, speech, and body due to our wrong believes that we've gathered in our past lives. So, at the end of the day, we should review where we gave unhappiness to others and made a 'loss' in our Store of Happiness (profit = giving happiness); repent; and do Pratikraman (as for forgiveness) from the inner soul of that person(s).
Thus, by following these 4 simple steps in our daily lives, it is easy to increase the profit of our new venture and live an extremely joyous life.

The Story of Alexander the Great
The great Greek king, ALexander, after conquering many kingdoms, was returning home. on the way, he fell ill and he was bedridden for months. With death drawing close, Alexander realized how his conquests, his great army, his sharp sword and all of his wealth were of no use.
He called his generals and said, "I will depart from this world soon. But I have three wishes. Please fulfill my wishes without fail." With tears flowing down their cheeks, the generals agreed to abide by their king's last wishes.
"My first desire is that," said Alexander, "my coffin physicians alone must carry my coffin." "Secondly, when my coffin is being carried to the grave, the path leading to the graveyard should be strewn with gold, silver and precious stones which I have collected in my treasury. My third and last wish is that both my hands should be kept dangling out of my coffin." The people who had gathered there wondered at the king's strange wishes. But no one dared to questions. Alexander's favorite general kissed his hand and pressed them to his heart. "O king, we assure you that your wishes will all be fulfilled. But tell us why do you make such strange wishes?"
At this ALexander took a deep breath and said, "I would like the world to know of the three lessons I have just learnt. I want my physicians to carry my coffin because people should realize that no doctor can really cure anybody. They are powerless and cannot save a person from the clutches of death. So let not people take life for granted.
The second wish of strewing gold, silver and other riches on the way to the graveyard is to tell people that not even a fraction of gold can be taken by me. Let people realize that it is a sheer waste of time to chase wealth.
And about my third wish of having my hands dangling out of the coffin, I want people to know that I cam empty handed into this world and empty handed I go out of this world."
Alexander's last words:
"Bury my body, do not build any monument, keep my hands outside so that the world knows the person who won the world had nothing in his hands when dying."

Once upon a time....
There was a rick King who had four wives. He loved the fourth wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.
He also loved his third wife very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him for another.
He also love his second wife. She was his confidence and was always kind, considerate, and patient with him.
Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the difficult times.
The King's first wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love his first wife. Although she loved him deeply, but he hardly noticed her!
One day, the King fell ill and he knew he did not have much time left.
He though of his luxurious life and wondered, "I now have four wives with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone."
Thus, he asked the fourth wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I am dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No way!" replied the fourth way and she walked away without another word. her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.
The sad King then asked the third wife, "I have loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep my company?"
"No!", replied the third wife.
"Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to remarry!" His heart sank and turned cold.
He then asked the second wife, "I have always turned to you for help and you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep company?" "I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!" replied the second wife.
"At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave." Her answer struck him like a bolt of lightning, and the King wad devastated.
Then a voice called out: "I'll go with you. I'll follow you no matter where you go." The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was very skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect.
Greatly grieved, the King said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!"
Moral and Message:
In truth, we all have these four wives in our lives:
Our fourth wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it will leave us when we die.
Our third wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others.
Our second wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.
And our first wife is our SOUL.
Often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world.
However, our Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go.
