Man and Money
Man and Money
Description
From the Back of the Book

Really monks do not money for their needs are negligible. Monks can live without money all their lives.

But

If monks start serving the poor, then they also need money. Of course, if monks serve the poor by preaching Vedanta, then also they need no money.

But
Swami Vivekananda says, it is blasphemy to preach vedanta to an empty stomach. So out of sheer necessity monks have to handle money for serving man!

Foreword

The subject matter of this book is MONEY. It is perhaps very difficult to find a more interesting, fascinating and exasperating subject than this. Money has a charm that is difficult to resist, a lure that is difficult to reject, and a power that is difficult to subdue: it is no wonder that so many people have fallen prey to it.

In this booklet, you will find Swami Purushottamananda's reflections on money. These reflections, however, have no pretence to anything profound. They in fact, come to you in the garb of humour; but hidden in this garb is a message that is worth considering.

Has money no value? Yes, it certainly has a value. It is a very important means to attain most of our goals; but sadly, most people mistake this means for an end. Wisdom consists in knowing that money can never be an end in itself. Writes Swami Purushottamananda:

Money cannot be the
aim of our lives; never.
Money will remain
a means forever.

The swamiji regrets that man first gave value to a piece of paper and later let this piece of paper rule the roost. The observation that Currency is Currency, so long as it is in currency" highlights the need for keeping money in circulation without letting it lie idly. We do hope that you enjoy reading this booklet

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
