Radhanath Swami on The Value of Money

Money is only valuable to the extent it helps us become God conscious and helps others to become God conscious, but if money is doing the opposite then it is an impediment. You are selling your soul, for the cheap things of this world. It’s not worth it. So, you must be very careful to balance your life in such a way that you have set quality time aside for devotion and for saintly association. But if you are working and struggling in the passion of youth for earning money, as some householders do, then you are wasting your precious life. You are giving up a rare diamond for broken pieces of glass. Earning money is fine but it should be balanced with spiritual practices. That’s real wealth. Do not lose anything for that.

  5. This is so true. Material life is so enticing until you taste spiritual life and then you acquire the higher taste, which then turns one away from material pleasures. Thank you swamiji for educating us on this most important aspect of life.
