Excerpts from ‘Speaking Tree’ of 10th July 2011 (A TOI publication) on temple wealth

 

True wealth is that which enriches our lives in some way. Gold has value only if it is transacted. Locked away in a dark cellar, it has absolutely no value.

 

The concept of wealth-generation is only about two-years old. Before that even kings did not know what to do with their gold and riches. If that gold can be put to use for common benefit, then it creates wealth. Otherwise it is dead investment.

 

In discussions about the new found treasure, nobody even remembers Bhagwan Padmanabha.  A temple is considered big when it generates huge income.. if a thousand gold coins all look the same, then there is no rarity also. So keep just one or two in museum to study them and utilize the rest for the welfare of the people.

 

Absolute freedom or bliss-experience comes to those seers who are free from desire and anger, who are detached and who work for the welfare of all beings.
