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.

Attachment, for instance, holds our cells together; it is also the root of much suffering, for attachment to material objects or people keeps man's awareness externalized, incapable of expressing itself in full freedom.
