Condensed From Talks by – Pujya Guruji Shree Rishi Prabhakarji.
In this article, Pujya Guruji enlightens us as to what is the true sense of prosperity. An amazing eye-opener for all of us that lightens our views and stuck-up-ness about Richness and Prosperity.~
Today we are giving you the highest gift, that you will ever receive.
This is my promise to you, that you will have all the money that you will ever need to the end of your life.
My second promise is that you will have all the food that is necessary till the end of your life.
Now your money problem is over and the food problem is over.
I will give you one more promise, that you will have all the time that is necessary for you to do everything that needs to be done to the end of your life.
This is how the life of richness starts. This is the first lesson of Aishwarya Upanishad.
Once you are satisfied that you have all the money that you need; you have all the food that you will ever need, and you have all the time to do whatever you need to do, then there is no problem with anything.
Being in this ‘no problem state’ is the starting point of ‘Richness’.
This is just like the lesson on happiness. When you realise everything is here, what you have to do? – Nothing. Everybody is looking for happiness. The Truth is just the opposite, we know, that happiness is always there.
Richness does not come from having any particular thing. Richness starts from your inner being.
No amount of money you possess, can make you feel rich. Only by turning this upside down will you see that everything is wonderful.
Richness is in seeing that there is – Richness.
Rich and Poor Countries
A lot of people feel that there are rich countries and poor countries; that there are rich people and poor people and that we must eliminate poverty by having poverty elimination programs.
Nobody can be made rich or poor by anyone else. Only you yourself can make yourself poor or rich by seeing that everything is okay or not okay.
Richness lies in seeing that there is – Richness.
Most people, when they start reading the scriptures, they feel guilty about consuming too much food and other materialistic things.
They feel they are depriving some-body else, and to assuage their own guilt, they start giving away their wealth in charity. This is not true sharing.
Sharing your riches really happens when you are feeling very full and satisfied within. That’s the only richness that you can transmit.
A person, who is ‘rich’, offers his riches because it is his tendency to offer, not because he expects anything in return.
This is TRUE RICHNESS for a human being.
