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.

When guests come, they must be given hospitality, at least a mat to sit on and a glass of water to drink. These are obligatory gifts. You must never leave your guest standing, and you must never leave your guest thirsty.
