Ten Commandments for Students from Taittiriya Upanishad – Part 6

Dear All,

 

Forth of the Ten Commandments:


4. Acquire Wealth legitimately :( bhootyei na Pramaditavyam):

 

 Upanishads did not preach poverty. They spoke of a healthy and prosperous life. The ideal of renunciation is not the ideal of poverty and agony but learning to help others with whatever we acquire.

 

The Upanishadic was a prosperous society. It was not a consumerist’s society but it was full of wealth and meet one’s needs. That is why the rishi advices that one should not give up acquisition of wealth but, he also cautions, one should do so through legitimate means. When a person earns through illegitimate means, he gets wealth but along with wealth, he also gets fear, suspicion, and restlessness of the mind despite of so much of wealth, how many people complain of lack of peace of mind or even normal sleep and joy in life! Sri Rama Krishna used to advice people to earn well but not consider earning as an end by itself. When one earns honestly one may not get all the income to fulfill greed and imagined requirements, but one can surely meet one’s needs
