Wealth or Money can bring laziness, misery, arrogance, disease, greed, insecurity, jealousy, anger, fear, indulgence, ego and enemies.
So, a more precise prayer to the Guru/God would be…
God give me Money;
Money that brings
Enterprise and not laziness,
Joy and not misery,
Confidence and not arrogance,
Good health and not disease,
Discrimination and not indulgence,
Generosity and not greed or insecurity,
Belongingness and not jealousy,
Peace and not anger,
Valor and not fear,
Compassion and not ego,
Friends and not enemies,
Give me money, that brings me closer to You.
PS: Spirituality is not anti-money, anti-fame or anti-power. If we use it for the good and for others, we will be blessed with more and more.
A cute story shared by Rashmin…
A little boy went on stage and asked for chocolates Gurudev had a box of, beside Him. Gurudev gave him a handful, which the kid promptly went down and distributed. He came back for more and Gurudev game him again, which repeated a few times. One volunteer near Gurudev’s seat prompted that the kid is coming again and again. Gurudev smiled, “I know. As long as he keeps sharing, I will keep giving him more”.
Wow! There is a learning of a lifetime in this…
