Utilize impoverishment as an oppurtunity for enrichment ! Diksha Mataji (Gita Daily)

Published on Jul 26, 2013

Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 09, Text 22

When faced with financial challenges, we often worry, “What do I live with?” This worry is, no doubt, valid and important. At the same time, such situations are also invaluable impetuses for asking a more fundamental question: “What do I live for?”

The eleventh canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam describes the story of such a priority reformation, wherein a wealthy super-miser lost everything due to a series of disasters. While trying to make sense out of the loss of the ultimate means for living, he discovered the ultimate purpose for living: developing an eternal relationship with Krishna. Being enriched with this sense of purpose, he cast off the feeling of being impoverished and went on to attain life’s ultimate success.
