what we have is sufficient. If we get more , we work and we get more(automatically), without sacrificing our spiritual life, that’s all right. Everyone has a particular destiny. Someone may be wealthy or someone may not be. But by giving an honest day’s work whatever the return is, one should be satisfied with that. That is the brahminical system. Not to sacrifice one’s spiritual principles in order to just accumulate more and more. One’s never gonna be satisfied, anyway.
