Even though good"> health is most important, we see that people are instead more worried these days about money. People want to hoard more and more of it and spend it. Because of this feverishness, neither they are able to achieve much in material world nor are they able to progress satisfactorily in spiritual field.

The fact is that NATURE generates sufficient resources for sustaining the world population. We have to remember this and evaluate if

1) We have increased our wants disproportionately or

2) If we have constrained our capacity of production / earning. It is also possible that we might not have been able to balance the two. Below are few principles to help resolve this issue –

  • There is no problem with gaining affluence if the money/ resources are being used for good work. Doing this gives respect to the contributor and helps in maintaining the world operations. Restraint should be exercised in consumption and not in earning of wealth.
  • Pension holders and people whose spouse / children earn enough, should also not sit idle as their abilities will rot like an unused iron.
  • Family members should be encouraged to engage collectively in useful labor like kitchen garden, sewing clothes, washing clothes, self study and help instead of tuitions. This has more psychological benefits than financial benefits. It helps in creating respect for hard work and roots out the weeds of laziness.
  • However, care should be taken to ensure earnings are not generated from activities which make mankind weak, eg. drugs. Nor should it be earned by fraud, stealing, adulteration, lottery, gambling, excessive profiteering and tax evasion.
  • In order to increase wealth, we should develop our capability constantly, be passionate and work hard. We should look at completing the task to the best of our abilities. This helps in development of personality and we get respect and greater wealth.
  • Lots of people spend major part of their wealth on jewelry, fashion, eating out, marriages Second aspect of being wealthy is being frugal i.e. use minimal for oneself and save it to put it for important and useful work.  --Extract From Gurudev 's Folder.
