Money Can't Buy You Wealth


A e-devotee in Germany asks about wealth. Gurudeva explains how many people approach wealth as the accumulation of money and possessions. But the spiritual, asian way of wealth is different. True wealth is based more on having time to enjoy what one already has, spending time with friends and family, and the truest wealth is a firm inner contentment.

It is not a matter of becoming the Self, but of realizing that you never were not the Self. And what is that Self? It is Parasiva. It is God. It is That which is beyond the mind, beyond thought, feeling and emotion, beyond time, form and space.
—Gurudeva
